**IMPORTANT ALERT**

New Alert - Updated: August 11, 2015

Fraudulent emails are being received by individuals and/or companies with the subject title similar to "You have 1 new Security Message" or "Dear Valued Customer". This email appears to be from UVA Community Credit Union telling them that there are new Security Messages to view or asking them to login to re-activate. The email includes a link that redirects the individual to a fraudulent web page designed to look like the credit union website and may contain a virus or malicious software, or solicit password information.

If you receive an email like this, do not click on the link as doing so may open your system to damage from viruses.

If you clicked through to this fraudulent website, you may be at risk for subsequent fraud. Change passwords to your Online Banking and Email accounts. 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.

Visit our Security Center to learn more about protecting your computer, or 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.
