Phishing Attacks Continue to Rise

Phishing attacks continue to be widespread. Cybercriminals craft professional-looking and sounding communications - such as emails, social media messages, text messages, and phone calls - to trick individuals into providing private personal and/or financial information.

The following are steps you should take to help detect and prevent exposure to fraud caused by phishing attacks:

  • NEA FCU will NEVER use outbound communications to receive personal or financial information from our account holders.
  • NEVER respond to emails, text messages, or phone calls requesting personal or financial information.
  • Be particularly cautious when receiving emails with an unknown sender, unsolicited emails or text messages, or when opening links provided in unsolicited emails or text messages. It is best not to open these communications.
  • Validate browser security is in place and is working effectively.
  • Protect passwords with multiple methods of authentication to help prevent phishing attacks.

If you believe that you have been a victim of phishing attacks and that your accounts have been compromised, contact us at (855) NEA-4YOU. Be safe!
