Beware of Zelle-ous Scammers

December 1, 2023

Beware! Scammers are now pretending to be bank employees to initiate instant money transfers using the Zelle service. Good Morning America featured a story about one man whose entire account was drained after he responded to text messages he thought were from his bank, Capital One.Far from it! This is such a pervasive scam that we ask you to let everyone you know how easy it is for these scammers to convince people they are calling from “your bank’s fraud department.”

Anytime you get an email, text or robocall saying it is from NASA Federal Credit Union's Security Department, take a pause. Do not respond directly. Instead, call us at 1-888-NASA-FCU to verify the claim directly with us. It's better to be safe than sorry!
