Five County CU reported last week that non-members were targeted for an e-mail phishing scam that purported to be official credit union correspondence. The site appeared to bring the user to homebanking site at Synergent, the Maine CU League's online banking service provider, but was actually taking the user to a server collecting information in Seoul, South Korea. The members were asked to visit the website, log in to their account and fill in required personal information, including PIN numbers, debit/credit card numbers, account numbers and Social Security numbers.
