Beware of Latest Email Scams

FALSE NACHA EMAILS

10/2/13

The National Automated Clearing House Association (“NACHA”) is warning businesses and individuals about emails purporting to be from NACHA.  The email typically states there was some issue with either the receipt of the customer’s payroll or the payroll file that was submitted was denied for some reason.

The email typically contains a link with “more information concerning this payment/file”.  DO NOT CLICK ON THIS LINK. 

Advice:

·         Do not open the email

·         If you have opened it, do not click any links or attachments because they may install a virus or other spyware on your computer

·         Delete the email

NACHA will never email you about an ACH transaction or failed batch of any kind.

Jury duty scam

A new scam has emerged where customers are receiving phone calls that there is a warrant for their arrest because they missed their jury duty appointment.  The customer then explains that they did not receive a notice and the fraudster then asks to verify the customer’s information such as name, address and social security number.

If you receive such a call, DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR INFORMATION OVER THE PHONE.  Please be aware of any attempts to gain access to personal non-public information.

 

Stay tuned for more tips and tricks to protect against fraud.
