A new year, another new phishing scam looking to grab your credit card information.

A fraudulent e-mail seeking credit card information (known as a “phishing fraud”) has been circulating nationwide since 2 p.m. EST today.

This fraudulent phishing email appears to be from the National Credit Union Association (NCUA) and contains a link purportedly to obtain a subscription for the NCUA Express Subscription service. When that link is used, the recipient is directed to a “clone” of the NCUA Express Service site that seeks credit card information from those to whom the phish was sent.

If you receive such an email, please ignore it, as it is fraudulent. NCUA does NOT charge for the Express Subscription service and does NOT solicit credit card information over the Internet.

If you have questions or comments, please contact the NCUA Fraud Hotline at 800-827-9650 or, during off duty hours, at 703-728-0700.
