The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is warning credit unions of e-mails that claim to be from the NCUA and promises their recipients $50 for taking an NCUA-created survey. According to the agency, the survey link directs members to a false version of the NCUA homepage. That site contains "an illicit survey that solicits credit card account numbers and confidential personal information" from survey respondents.
The NCUA warned that the site is a phishing
scam, adding that the agency "will never ask credit union members or the general public for personal account or personally identifiable information as part of a survey."
"Any e-mail that alleges to be from NCUA and asks for account information is fraudulent and should be treated as suspicious," NCUA added.
