IMPORTANT NOTICE: Phishing SCAM targeting online banking SITES

Please note that this scam is targeting many different online banking sites and is in no way exclusive to Bridge Credit Union.

Members affected by this scam have a malicious program on their computer that displays a pop-up in online banking. The pop-up attempts to lure the member to a fraudulent site offering free gifts, games, credit checks, or other rewards.

If any member believes this has happened to them please report it immediately 800.434.7300. If the pop-up appears, log out of online banking and other sensitive online applications before navigating to other websites. Additionally, please refrain from conducting any sensitive online transactions until all malicious software has been removed from the computer. Do not click on the link or enter any personal information. 

As always, be extremely suspicious of pop-ups that appear in online banking.
