Pentagon Federal Credit Union (PenFed) has become aware of an internet scam used to defraud online sellers using false wire transfer notifications that appear to come from PenFed.
In executing the scam, the scammers will offer to purchase expensive items from online forums (ex. eBay, Craigslist, Etsy, etc). They will then send an email with a wire transfer notification using some variation of the PenFed name and request shipment of the goods based on this receipt without ever transferring the funds.
If you are a victim of internet fraud, please contact your local law enforcement.
