NCUA Warns against Phony E-Mails

E-mails purporting to offer $40 to participate in a survey that say they come from the NCUA are false, the agency warned.

The e-mails, which solicit credit union member participation in an Online Survey or Member Survey are “fraudulent, and may be an attempt to obtain confidential member information. NCUA does not solicit such information from credit union members. This is a phishing activity with no NCUA activity or approval,” the agency said in a statement.
