Spam Emails – CU Lottery

East Kilbride Credit Union has recently been made aware of an email being circulated among credit union members, suggesting the recipient has won a monetary prize through a credit union lottery.

The email is received from www.culottery.co.uk, announcing your win and will most likely ask you to reply with bank details. Any members replying to these emails or providing bank details will be placing themselves at risk of identify fraud.

East Kilbride Credit Union would like to inform members that we don’t run a member lottery and there is no national credit union lottery as stated in the email.

We will never email members requesting confidential information such as bank details or authorise any payment transfers via email.

If you receive one of these emails, please ignore it.

If you are in any doubt about what to do or are unsure about any email you have received regarding the credit union, please feel free to phone a member of staff on 01355 224771.
