Texting Fraud Alert

Recently, there have been fraud attempts, known as "Phishing", that were initiated via text message sent to both the general public and to some credit union members that appeared to be from the credit union. These false messages direct members to verify their credit union account for unusual activity by calling a number not associated with the credit union.

Anyone who receives an e-mail/text message/or phone call that asks for account information should consider it to be a fraudulent attempt to obtain their personal account data for an illegal purpose and should not follow the instructions in the text or e-mail.

If you responded to such a text message or e-mail and provided any confidential account information, please notify LINCONE immediately of the scheme. You should also change your account's PIN, and take any additional action recommended by your credit union to protect your account.

If you feel that you have received a fraudulent phasing text message or e-mail please delete the entire e-mail message or text message.

Additionally, if you have any questions, please contact the credit union at 402.441.3555 / 888.790.7261.

Thank You,
LINCONE Federal Credit Union
Management & Staff




Email Phishing

Recently, there have been multiple e-mail fraud attempts, known as "Phishing", that were initiated via e-mail sent to both the general public and to some credit union members that appeared to be from the credit union. These are false e-mails requesting or stating "end of month statement; required". This email is not from LINCONE.

Please remember, LINCONE will NEVER ASK MEMBERS OR ANYONE for personal information or send such an email. Anyone who receives an e-mail that purports to be from LINCONE and asks for account information or other personal information should consider it to be a fraudulent attempt to obtain their personal account data for an illegal purpose and should not follow the instructions in the e-mail.

If you responded to such an e-mail and provided any confidential account information, please notify LINCONE immediately of the scheme. You should also change your account's PIN, and take any additional action recommended by your credit union to protect your account. If you feel that you have received a fraudulent phishing e-mail please forward the entire e-mail message to info@linconefcu.org

Additionally, you can file formal complaints concerning any suspected fraudulent e-mail with the Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) at www.ic3.gov. The IFCC is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National White Collar Crime Center.
