Email Phishing Notification

January 2022 - Email Phishing

Northern Savings has recently learned of email phishing scams that we wish to make you aware of. The scams attempt to lure individuals to provide personal information. For example, some emails have the subject line "NSCU RFP 2022" and are attempting to impersonate current and former employees of Northern Savings.

Please be advised that these emails were not generated from an official Northern Savings email domain and did not come from Northern Savings employees.

If you have received one of these emails:

  • If you have received a phishing email (the content may vary slightly) you should DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY.
  • Do not click on any links or open any attachments.
  • Do not provide any data or information.
  • If you have clicked on a link or provided information (e.g., personal or company usernames or passwords) please change those usernames or passwords immediately (or ask your IT department do so).
Northern Savings takes information security very seriously and we are investigating the matter and will provide an update should one be warranted.

If you have any immediate questions or concerns, please contact:

Northern Savings will never send you an email or text  asking you for private information such as passwords or login credentials.

What is phishing?

You may get an email or text that looks like it’s from a real company. It could ask you for private information, such as your date of birth, passwords, login credentials, or credit card details. Sometimes the email will tell you to visit a fake website.

What to do if you suspect phishing?

If you get this kind of email or text, don’t click on any links or give any information about yourself. If you have any doubts about where the email came from, make sure to check the identity of the sender by looking up their company phone number or website. Do not call or email the sender using the contact information contained in the email.
