Email Money Transfer Fraud

It has been reported to our credit union that criminals are sending out fraudulent Email Money Transfers, and installing malware upon opening of the email.

They can be identified by the recipient because the Sender (*) is not known to the recipient, there is no “To:” and the “Deposit Required” link when cursured over does not match the printed link in the email.

(*) Note: Because of social engineering and social networking in the future it is conceivable the person’s name in the email could be someone known to the recipient as these attempts get more sophisticated.
If it is too good to be true, it always is.  Please do not open emails from strangers!


The Winnipeg Police Credit Union values your privacy-we do not sell, trade or forward your email address or name to anyone.
