Beware of "Navy Federal Online Banking Alert" Phishing Scams

Navy Federal Credit Union Member customers who have received the "Online Banking Alert" emails like the one below, which claim they need to update their account profile, are asked to delete and not follow the instructions in them. This is because the emails area a phishing scam that is 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 Navy Federal Credit Union Member(NFCU) account credentials (usernames and passwords).


Navy Federal Credit Union Member customers who have already been tricked by the phishing email messages are asked to change their passwords and contact Navy Federal Credit Union Member (NFCU) immediately before their money is stolen, online accounts hijacked and used fraudulently by cybercriminals.
