Fake websites have surfaced with a logo and design similar to that of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). These imposter sites attempt to convince consumers to provide their sensitive personal information, such as Social Security Number, or to transfer large amounts of money. It's been reported that consumers have also received emails from the "National Credit Union" website, which is not affiliated in any way with the NCUA. The NCUA warns all credit union members to be on the lookout for bogus websites and emails posing as the federal agency.
Do not provide information to the "National Credit Union" website or attempt to conduct any financial transactions through it. The NCUA would not request personal or financial information in this manner.
If you receive any suspicious emails, you should call the NCUA's Fraud Hotline at 800.827.9650 as well as contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center
, a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center.
Please contact United Heritage immediately if you suspect you may have become a victim of identity theft. Visit the NCUA website
for additional information on how you can protect yourself.
