What is Phishing?

Phishing is a cybercrime in which a target or targets are contacted by email, telephone or text message by someone posing as a legitimate institution to lure individuals into providing sensitive data such as personally identifiable information, banking and credit card details, and passwords. The information is then used to access important accounts and can result in identity theft and financial loss.

 

Naas Credit Union have been informed that there’s currently a phishing scam targeting Credit Union members throughout the country, and we wanted to reach out, and make sure you have the information you need to help protect yourselves.

 

Members who have been targeted will receive an email from the email address creditunion@online.ie or one similar to this. The email will inform the member of a file named “Payment Confirmation” that’s been transferred to them through a site called WeTransfer, by what appears to be your Credit Union, and will be encouraged to click to download the files.

 

This scam is designed to collect members’ personal details with a view to gaining access to personal financial accounts

 

If you receive any emails indicating they are sent by or on behalf of Naas Credit Union and are suspicious of these, please do not hesitate to contact our offices.
