Reports of Fraudulent Federal Reserve E-Mail Messages
Dec 28, 2012
Some consumers and customers have reported receiving fraudulent email messages that reference ACH Summary or ACH Notification and instruct the recipient to click on several links. These emails were not sent by the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Banks deliver payment information to our financial institution customers via our trusted channels, and do not communicate this information directly to consumers. Financial institutions are advised to follow information security best practices, and to advise their customers not to click on the links contained in these types of email and to delete them immediately.
