Phishing is a cybercrime that may come in the form of unsolicited emails, text messages, or calls.

Scammers claim to be from legitimate institutions. They may say that you have to respond right away to avoid an account suspension and that you need to provide them information.  
In some cases, they entice victims with an offer that is too good to be true.   

Their goal is to get your personal information, such as account numbers, social security numbers, login IDs and passwords. With this, they can steal your money or identity.  

Email or text links will direct you to bogus websites that may look like the real deal, then ask for this information. Malicious links may give scammers access to personal information on your computer or device.

Be skeptical, report any unusual behavior, and don’t fall for their bait. 

And always do business with a local member owned credit union that you trust.
