Fictitious email messages, allegedly initiated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) regarding funds purportedly under the control of the OCC, have been sent to some credit union members.
Any communication claiming that the OCC is involved in holding any funds for the benefit of any individual or entity is fraudulent. The OCC does not participate in the transfer of funds for, or on behalf of, individuals, business enterprises, or governmental entities.
If you have received an email from the following email address, do not respond – it is fraudulent:
The perpetrators may request, among other data, bank account information, including bank statements, with the purported purpose of making a large dollar deposit into your account.
Do not respond in any manner to any proposal supposedly issued by the OCC that requests personal account information, or that requires the payment of any fee in connection with the proposal.
