FRAUD ALERT     

Website Uses Logo Similar to NCUA’s, Mimics Website Design and Language

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (March 17, 2015) – The National Credit Union Administration has received reports of an online phishing scam that uses a website with a logo and a design similar to the agency’s own site in an attempt to convince unwary customers to provide information or send money.

Consumers have received emails from the National Credit Union website, which apparently originates in Australia and claims to offer services in the United States, Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. This website is not affiliated in any way with the National Credit Union Administration, a federal agency, and the emails are not from NCUA.

The emails attempt to persuade individuals to provide personal information, such as Social Security numbers, account numbers and login information, or transfer large amounts of money. Consumers should neither provide information to this website nor attempt to conduct any financial transactions through it. NCUA would not request personal or financial information in this manner. See NCUA’s Privacy Policy for more information.

Consumers receiving such emails should call NCUA’s Fraud Hotline toll-free at 800-827-9650 or 703-518-6550 in the Washington, D.C., area. Consumers should also contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center. NCUA also offers information about avoiding frauds and scams on its MyCreditUnion.gov website.

Consumers who suspect they may have become victims of identity theft should immediately contact their financial institutions and, if necessary, close existing accounts and open new ones. NCUA urges consumers also contact the three major credit bureaus—Equifax (800-525-6285), Experian (888-397-3742) and TransUnion (800-680-7289)—to request a fraud alert be placed on their credit reports.

DON'T TAX MY CREDIT UNION

The Nation's Credit Unions face a potential tax challenge in Congress if legislators undertake tax reforms that would wipe the slate clean of all current tax exemptions and develop new tax laws. Credit Union's are Member Owned, Not-For-Profit Cooperatives with a specified mission of promoting thrift and providing access to credit to their membership. The federal tax exemptions allow us to offer better rates on savings accounts, lower rates on loans and much smaller fees. There are some in the financial industry, "mostly bankers", who say Credit Unions should pay income taxes, even though the banks took huge government bailouts. Not one taxpayer dime has ever been spent to bail out a Credit Union. Our elected representatives in Washington D.C. are in the process of reviewing tax reform possibilities. I am asking you as Hopewell Chemical Federal Credit Union Members, to join us and contact your representatives, telling them not to tax your Credit Union. Details about this effort are available and I would also encourage you to visit http://www.donttaxmycreditunion.org/ to send a letter to your representative.

On the behalf of our Dedicated Volunteers and Staff, I thank you for YOUR Support of and Membership in Hopewell Chemical FCU. We look forward to a lifelong relationship with you and your family.

Lynda K. Frink, Manager
