EMAILS COMING FROM NACHA.ORG ARE PHISHING SCAMS

SUBJECT: ACH Payment Canceled

SCENARIO TO WATCH FOR

It was brought to BBB’s attention by a Helena professional that he received this email in his work INBOX:

From: <admin@nacha.org>
Date: 2011/7/7
Subject: ACH payment canceled
To: XXXX

The ACH transfer (ID: 32583XXXXX), recently initiated from your checking account (by you or any other person), was canceled by the Electronic Payments Association.

If you have any questions or comments, contact us at info@nacha.org. Thank you for using http://www.nacha.org.

The Helena man did the right thing by NOT clicking on links or sharing personal info, but by “going off the screen” and contacting NACHA directly to ask about this questionable email he received. NACHA immediately asked, “Is this call about the email you received? It’s a scam.”
