Aspire Credit Union recently became aware of a website replicating their existing site, including look and feel and branding. The scam website also changed the logo to read “Aspire Credit Bank” in the place of “Aspire Credit Union.”
Aspire Credit Union reports that its systems were not breached by this activity and the credit union has worked with its service providers and contacted the FBI’s Internet Crime Department to ensure its continued security.
Credit union wants members and potential members to be aware that this bogus site has phishing intentions to obtain personal information from the people who provide it. Members should visit www.aspire.creditunion directly to avoid landing on an incorrect site.
In the future, as the credit union works to have the fake website taken down, staff may ask members additional questions to confirm their identity. If you visited the wrong website and know that your account information was entered on the spoofed website, please monitor your accounts and notify the credit union immediately if you believe your information has been compromised.
Aspire Credit Union, formerly Prairie Federal Credit Union, has served communities in the Minot area since 1937. Aspire Credit Union is a community-chartered credit union serving Bottineau, McHenry, McLean, Mountrail, Renville and Ward counties.
