Fraud Alert - Fraudulent Text Messages
There is a Vishing Scam circulating that involves unsolicited text messages being sent to cell phones that appear to be from your credit union. The message states that your Credit Union Card has been suspended and you are asked to go to a personal link to un block it. DO NOT GO TO THE LINK. DELETE THE TEXT MESSAGE.
Such a scam could be used to obtain personally identifiable information and credit union account access information.
The messages are sent at random. Cell phone users should be wary of all unsolicited text messages. Such messages should be deleted and all deleted text messages should be removed, if possible. The perpetrators have been known to use Spyware in conjunction with their text message solicitation.
Do not respond to unsolicited text messages, email messages or telephone calls that ask for any account information or other private information. Discovery FCU will never contact you by email or text message to ask you to update your account information or to give any personally identifiable information.
If you have any questions regarding fraudulent text messages or emails that you may receive, please contact the credit union at 610.372.8010.
