Please be aware of ongoing phishing attempts by fraudsters.

The scam begins by the fraudster contacting the victim via email, urging them to reinstate their account. Once the user logs into the platform, the fraudster is then able to gain the member's credential. 

Suggested Best Practices for Members:

  • Be cautious when responding to emails, SMS text messages as well as voice calls, even if they appear to come from the credit union.
  • Call us at 301-944-1800 to question any SMS text messages or voice calls purportedly from the credit union.
  • Never provide personal information in response to emails, SMS text messages and phone calls purportedly from the credit union.
  • Do not click on links included in emails or text messages from unknown sources. Legitimate requests to validate card activity will request a simple response of YES or NO. They will not include hyperlinks to other websites or ask for any personal info.

If you think you have been a victim of this scam please contact us immediately at 301-944-1800 or via email at mafcu@mafcu.org
