CFU Email Spam Alert

We have been notified that CFU webmail users are receiving spam email messages posing as CFU Customer Service Manager Molly Cormaney and asking users to open an attached Word document. This email is fraudulent and should be deleted.

When cyber criminals attempt to trick you into divulging personal information by sending you a fake email posing as a legitimate business or friend it is known as phishing. 

During a phishing attack the criminal will pose as Cedar Falls Utilities and ask you to confirm personal information or ask you to open a malicious attachment that infects your computer with a virus or malware. 

When in doubt do not click any links or provide any information. Call the company at a known phone number (not one provided within the email) to verify the email’s authenticity.
