Navy Federal Alert: Electronic Identity Verification Required
Dear NAVY Federal Credit Union valued customer,
During the last 24 hours we have noticed one or more attempts to log in to your NAVY Federal Online Banking account from a foreign IP address associated with multiple password failures and we suspect that your NAVY Federal account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party.
To help fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who owns an account, including joint owners.
What you have to
do is to take the following two easy steps required to verify your
identity. After the NAVY Federal EIVP™
is complete your account access will be automatically restored and this
will ensure us that your account has not been compromised:
Step 2: Review your recent
account history for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check
you account profile to make sure no changes have been made. If any
unauthorized activity has taken place on your account, report this to
NAVY Federal online security staff immediately.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate
your assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the entire NAVY
Federal banking system.
