Email Phishing Scam

3/19/2014

Dear Members

CO-OP Financial Services has notified our credit unions in the past about phone and email phishing scams and deceitful attempts to obtain cardholder information with the intent of committing fraudulent activity against member accounts. CO-OP has been made aware of a recently reported phishing scam that credit unions may be experiencing.

This fraudulent attempt to capture cardholder information is done with an email from possible various credit union email addresses. One recent email reported is efunds@securesuite.net, however there could be various emails used.

The message indicates confirmation of the member’s activation to the MasterCard SecureCode Service, instructing the member to personalize their MasterCard SecureCode account as soon as they can. A link has been provided to have the member log into their account. MasterCard has confirmed that this is not an email address used by MasterCard.

Click here to see a sample of the fraudulent email.
