Tulsa teachers credit unionPrestigious Tulsa teachers credit union has been hit by cyber criminals. The union was phised and vished by a cyber criminal recently. The cyber crimes targeted at the Union members included requests to fill out surveys, text messages and phone calls informing the Tulsa members that their accounts have been compromised and requests for additional information.

The fraudulent information has costed some member’s loss of funds in their accounts since they gave out the secret details of their accounts allowing the vishers and phisers to draw funds illegally. Tulsa is instructing its members to forward any suspicious email to Report_Fraud@ttcu.com. TTSU database was compromised by the cyber criminals and most people who wanted to do business with the company got confused. TTCU is currently in the process of reconciling and advising all the affected parties the nature of the problem and have pointed out that most of the recipients of the fraud attempts were not all members of TTCU.
