Fraud happens each and every day and can happen to anyone, even in North Dakota and Minnesota. Here at FCCU, we want to help educate our members and make sure you are protected.
Scam of the Month
Phishing – Social Engineering attempt to acquire personal information such as usernames, passwords, account information, card information, etc.
Smishing – Phishing attach where a cell phone user receives a text message containing a link that, if clicked, would lead to a site containing malware and/or downloads malware to the phone.
Vishing – Social engineering attempt to gather information over the phone. Call often comes from a spoofed phone number to look like a well known number. (Ex. Call comes through with a Credit Union phone number)
All the above social engineering techniques can result in the loss of funds and/or the compromise of personal information. It is important to safe guard your personal information and always be cautious when opening emails or links from individuals/businesses that you are unfamiliar with. Stay curious and when in doubt reach out to your local FCCU branch for assistance.
