Ironically, it appears the iC3 has fell prey to spam and will need to discontinue receiving reports via email in order to streamline the reporting process.
DISCONTINUANCE OF IC3 EMAIL ADDRESS NCUA@IC3.GOV FOR RECEIPT AND NOTIFICATION OF PHISHING SCHEMES
In an effort to streamline operations, on May 15, 2008 the IC3 will discontinue use of its email address NCUA@IC3.GOV for receiving reports of phishing schemes.
Reporting of these schemes should be accomplished following the date of this Alert by using the IC3 website’s “File a Complaint” process, which is available for use when reporting any other potential cyber crime.
