BEAVERTON, Oregon and LAFAYETTE, La. – The credit union industry has become a popular target for phishers. The University of Louisiana FCU said recently that it was hit by a phishing scam, making it the second Louisiana CU within a week’s time – the first being UNO FCU. A fraudulent e-mail was sent to ULFCU members and University of Louisiana user accounts, stating that attempts have been made to log in to their “bank” accounts and that members should confirm their online banking user name and password by sending them an e-mail or their accounts will be suspended. In Oregon, the Credit Union Association of Oregon said it was the target of a phishing effort where an e-mail, using the CUAO domain name, was circulated asking people to update their account information. CUAO is working with the FBI to investigate the scam. NCUA, CUNA and other have also been targeted in recent weeks.
