- Beware of Email 'Phishing' Scams
Bayview Credit Union would like to remind our members to beware of email 'phishing' scams. The use of fraudulent emails, designed to appear legitimate, is a common tactic by Internet scam-artists to trick users into entering their passwords and other confidential information, in order to gain access to their private accounts.
Bayview Credit Union will never ask for confidential information or send links to reset account access through email.
If you suspect that you have been victim to a phishing scam, please report it to Bayview Credit Union and have your account password (PAC) reset immediately.
- Avoiding a Phishing attack:
- Be wary of emails, (even from people you know as email addresses can be spoofed/faked) that ask you to click a link to enter account information.
- Never reveal confidential information unless you are certain that the person you're telling the information to is genuine, and even then ask yourself if they are entitled to the information.
- Check the address of websites you visit as it may be obvious by looking at the address box that the site is not genuine.
- Again, Bayview Credit Union will never ask for your online banking details by email â please alert Bayview Credit Union if you have been sent a phishing email
