An email Phishing Scam is attempting to capture Online Banking login and password information from members.    
It begins with an email.  We have found two variations:

Indicators that these messages are fraudulent:
  • The email address is a random set of characters For example:
  • The greeting refers to the recipient as Customer, not Member
  • There are grammatical errors, including no space between '24' and 'hours' and a capital Y in your in the middle of a sentence.
  • Hovering over the website link shows it going to a site in Australia (
  • It uses non-standard language.  i.e. 'expiry'.
  • The footer refers to us as Community First Credit Union Corporation

Clicking on the link presents a page that looks like our Online Banking Login page, where the fraudsters can capture your Online Banking UserID and Password.

What you can do:
  • If you believe you have given your UserID and Password by mistake - contact us as soon as possible at (920) 830-7200 or 1-866-273-2328.
  • Login to Online Banking at and change your password under My Preferences.

  • Remember these precautions to identify legitimate vs. Phishing emails:

    • Don't divulge or enter any information unless you are absolutely certain the message was sent by Community First.

    • If the originating email address is unusual - be suspicious.

    • If links don't come back to our website - be suspicious.
    • Verify the website address. Our main website is our Online Banking website is The "S" in https stands for secure. 

    • You will also find an image of a lock by the Online Banking login area of our website. If you click on the lock a pop-up message will appear that will provide the address of the website it is protecting. The security lock and the website addresses cannot be duplicated by a hacker. Always make sure that whenever you are on a website that is asking for personal information, that it has a security lock allocated to it.

    • Contact the Community First Call Center if you receive an email that appears suspicious or a phone call requesting you to provide information about your account.
