One form of "PHISHING" occurs when online crooks steal your Credit Union's logo and/or copy its corporate image to send phony e-mails asking you to "verify" your account information. If you take the bait by replying with your private financial information, the "phishers" use it to steal funds from your account. Remember, your Credit Union will NEVER ask you to "verify" account details by e-mail. Your Credit Union already has this information!
If you receive such an e-mail, DON'T REPLY and notify your Credit Union immediately.
