Recent Card Breach Could Increase Phishing

 

In light of the recent Global Payments breach, members should be aware of the potential for increased phishing attacks. These attacks could also target members who were not impacted by the recent card breach. Be aware of any suspicious emails, text messages or phone calls requesting any personal or financial information.

The card information that may be requested includes, cardholder billing address, 3 digit CVV2/CVC2 code found on the back of the card, or enrollment criteria/passwords for Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode. This card information was not part of the recent Global Payments breach. Criminals may ask members for this information to add to the other card data they may have obtained from the breach to perform card present (key entered) or card-not-present (mail/telephone/internet) non-magnetic stripe transactions.

Be sure to never respond to emails, text messages or phone calls requesting this type of information. If you receive a suspicious request, advise them to immediately contact the credit union.

Please contact a Member Service Representative with any questions at 860-253-4780 or 800-749-8305.
