August 05, 2015 Social Media Scams

Credit unions are reporting members being victimized by new money mule scams posted on Facebook. After members provide their online banking login credentials, the fraudsters deposit counterfeit checks through mobile remote deposit capture (mobile RDC) service. The members are then instructed to withdraw the funds, and split the proceeds with the fraudster. FAIRWINDS will never ask for your account log-in information and credentials. Do not respond to such requests you may receive.
