Beware of "Community Resource Credit Union Account has been Locked" Phishing Email Messages

Community Resource Credit Union customers are asked to delete and not follow the instructions in email messages that claim that their online banking accounts have been locked. The email messages (see a sample below) are phishing scams that are being sent by cybercriminals to frighten their potential victims into clicking on a link within the same email messages, which go to phishing websites that steal Community Resource Credit Union account credentials (usernames and passwords).

Please continue reading below.

Community Resource Credit Union cutomers who have already been tricked by the phishing email messages are asked to change their passwords and contact Community Resource Credit Union immediately, before their money is stolen, online accounts hijacked and used fraudulently by cybercriminals.
