The purpose of this fraud alert is to inform you of a scam that involves unsolicited text messages sent to cell phones. The message urges the recipients to call a number provided for information about account discrepancies and then solicits individual account information and pin numbers.
Cell phone users should be weary of unsolicited text messages. Such messages should be deleted and all deleted text messages should be removed, if possible, as the perpetrators have been known to use Spyware in conjunction with their text messaging solicitation. Such a scam could be used to obtain personally identifiable information and credit union account access information, for those who access their accounts using their cell phones. In order to avoid potential identity theft, if you receive one of these text messages, do not respond in any manner to it.
