We have been alerted to malicious phishing emails that may have been directed to our members. While the name and emails look remarkably like Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union, they do not originate from Greater Alliance and upon closer review you will notice subtle differences in these communications. We would like to warn you of this attempt to access member credentials and advise you not to access these emails and you should NOT enter any personal information or your Greater Alliance log in credentials.

What is Website Spoofing?
Website spoofing is the act of creating a website with the intention of misleading readers that the website has been created by a different person or organization. Normally, the spoof website will adopt the design of the target website and sometimes has a similar URL.
