Fraudulent NCUA Website

Scammers using a website with a logo and design similar to that of the National Credit Union Administration are attempting to convince consumers to provide sensitive information or send money. According to the NCUA, consumers have received emails from the National Credit Union website, which is not affiliated in any way with the NCUA, a federal agency, and the emails are not from the agency. The site apparently originates in Australia, the NCUA said in its warning, and claims to offer services in the United States, Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. 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. The NCUA warns that consumers should not should neither provide information to this website nor attempt to conduct any financial transactions through it. The NCUA would not request personal or financial information in this manner.
