Criminals are actively using e-mail schemes to defraud financial institutions and their customers—billions of dollars in possible losses.
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is issuing this advisory to help financial institutions guard against a growing number of e-mail fraud schemes in which criminals misappropriate funds by deceiving financial institutions and their customers into conducting wire transfers. This advisory also provides red flags—developed in consultation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. Secret Service (USSS)—that financial institutions may use to identify and prevent such e-mail fraud schemes.
The full advisory can be found here.
Be Aware That:
If you receive a suspicious email, please forward it to email@example.com.

Please be aware that we will be launching a new website on Monday, April 17th! All of our current website’s (www.constellationfcu.org) information and functionality will continue to be available on the newly renovated one. The only difference will be the placement of information. The new website should be more compatible with all your electronic devices (smartphones, tablets, and computers) and easier to navigate.
We are excited about this website revamp and hope that you enjoy the new layout and functionality!
