**IMPORTANT ALERT**

New Alert - Updated: March 17, 2011

We have been notified that members are receiving emails stating that the "Domestic Wire transfer, recently sent from your bank account, was cancelled by the Federal Reserve Wire Network." The email asks the member to click on a link for further information and appears to originate from the Federal Reserve.

DO NOT click the link or provide any account information. These emails are a phishing scam and not from the Federal Government.

Such a scam could be used to discern information used to steal your account information.

If you clicked a link within this fraudulent website, you may be at risk for subsequent fraud. You should ensure that you have the latest updates from your anti-virus vendor and run a full system scan. Please note that not all anti-virus vendors receive or update the latest virus signatures at the same time. Best practices are to configure your anti-virus software to automatically update and scan your computer on a regular basis. As always, you should closely monitor your accounts for suspicious activity.

You can learn more about protecting your computer in our Identity Theft Protection section or by visiting staysafeonline.org. Visit our Identity Theft Reporting section if you believe you have been a victim of identity theft.

UVA Community Credit Union will never contact you by email, cell phone, text message, or telephone asking for your personal information. If you have been a victim of a scam and think your UVA Community Credit Union account information may have been compromised, contact us immediately at 434-964-2001 or toll-free, 1-888-887-9136 or by secure email through Online Banking.
