SCAM ALERT

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Keep yourself protected.

Recently, NHFCU has encountered two separate circumstances where members have received e-mails from friends requesting money be wired via Western Union. In the e-mail a friend explains that they are traveling in the Philippines and are in need of financial help to get back home. This is a new scam trend that members should all be aware of.

In one circumstance a gentleman lost more than a thousand dollars, because he wired the funds through Western Union before calling the sender of the e-mail. After sending the funds, the man contacted his friend only to learn that she had not sent the e-mail and was not traveling. Fortunately, the second member called the credit union prior to wiring the funds, and we were able to help her avoid losing money.

If someone contacts you requesting money or payments such as this, don't be afraid to ask questions. What are the circumstances? How did you learn that your friend needs help? Have you spoken with this person or a mutual friend to confirm that they are traveling outside the country?


Being informed can help you avoid scams like these.
