Don’t Be Taken In By Common Phishing Scam
They’re still at it! Phishing scams continue to pop up regularly and claim victims. In phishing scams, Internet thieves set up a legitimate-looking, but counterfeit, Web site with the goal of tricking victims into giving them access to personal credit card numbers, account numbers, passwords and any other personal information that can help them steal from you. The URL will be similar but slightly different from the legitimate one.
The scammers send e-mails randomly, hoping someone will respond. If you ever get an e-mail claiming to be from TFCU and asking you to verify your information by clicking on a link, DON’T DO IT! If in doubt, call our Member Service Center and ask. Don’t use a phone number provided in the e-mail.
Be assured, TFCU will NEVER send you an e-mail to verify information we already have. To ensure you are on TFCU’s secure Web site, www.tinkerfcu.org, make sure the Web address is preceded by “https://” and there is a closed padlock in the lower right hand corner of your browser.
