That was the work of Wescom’s own tech-savvy staff and the CU’s phish-fighting partner, MarkMonitor. They put that graphic up for the several hours or so it took to take down the fake Internet site that would-be crooks had set up overseas to use to lure in members and get access to their accounts, and hopefully their money, too.
