Fraudulent Emails Appearing to Come from NACHA: Educate Yourself

12/03/2012 9:31 AM

SMU is reminding customers to be wary of emails that look like they are coming from the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA).  The Automated Clearing House Network serves as a secure, reliable network for direct consumer, business and government payments, and annually facilitates billions of payments such as Direct Deposit and Direct Payment.
If you receive an email from them it is really just an attempt to get you to reveal your banking information so the scammers can clean out your account or to download a virus.  Hundreds of thousands of these spam emails may be sent at one time.  The spammers are hoping you'll react without thinking and click on the link to make sure your bills get paid on time.
If you receive these emails in your inbox the Better Business Bureau recommends that you:
*Don't respond!
*Don't open any attachments.  They may download a virus to your computer.
*Don't click on any links or disclose any personal or financial information.
*Remember that corporate and government logos can easily be copied from the Internet to make the email look more authentic.
