Telephone Fraud Alert
We have been informed by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) about a new telephone fraud, known as "vishing" that is using NCUA's name in an attempt to obtain personal financial information. Several credit union members have been contacted by an automated phone call claiming to be from NCUA and notifying them that their debit card has been compromised. The call then asks the consumer to follow prompts, which request personal information, including sensitive financial data and personal identification information.
Anyone contacted by this so-called "vishing" scheme should immediately contact NCUA's Consumer Assistance Center Hotline at (800) 755-1030 or by email at email@example.com to report the scam.
