NACHA warns fraudulent e-mails continue
WASHINGTON (4/25/11)--NACHA--The Electronic Payments Association said Friday that it has been receiving reports that individuals and companies continue to receive fraudulent e-mails that appear to be sent from NACHA. NACHA said the content of the e-mails varies, but they mistakenly appear to be transmitted from e-mail addresses associated with the NACHA domain (@nacha.org). Some bear the name of fictitious NACHA employees, departments, or both. "NACHA itself does not process nor touch the ACH (automated clearinghouse) transactions that flow to and from organizations and financial institutions. NACHA does not send communications to persons or organizations about individual ACH transactions that they originate or receive,” the group advised in a release. The warning noted that phishing e-mails, such as these, frequently carry attachments or links to Web pages that host malicious code and software, which should not be opened or visited. NACHA asked that fraudulent e-mails claiming to be from NACHA be sent to abuse@nacha.org.
