Alert! Credit Union e-mail is a phishing scam

Wednesday February 28
The "Challenge Questions" e-mail received by many today on campus purports to be from the Princeton University Credit Union -- but beware, it is a phishing scam. The "enrollment" link connects to a server in a domain in France, not the Credit Union.

OIT's manager of Network Systems has blocked access to the URL from the campus network. However, anyone attempting to link to the URL from outside the campus network still will be able to connect to the scammers' web site.

People should NOT respond to the "Credit Union" mail and should not connect to the link provided in that e-mail.
