We have been made aware of a phishing scam that is currently targeting Credit Union Members. Members who have been targeted will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org or an address similar to this. The email will inform the member of a file named “Payment Confirmation” transferred using WeTransfer, by what appears to be your Credit Union, and the member 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. Members should be advised to NOT download the file and if you do get one of these emails to delete it immediately. If you are unsure of the safety or provenance of an email, you should contact Carlow Credit Union for clarification.
