Members receive fake text messages about their Visa debit cards. Do not respond!
Incidences have been reported that members received a “look alike” text message from an unknown source indicating their Visa debit card(s) have authorized transactions. The call back number listed was not associated with the credit union. This is an example of a phishing scam in which the scammer tries to trick the recipient into giving personal financial information. Do not respond to these types of texts! Call the credit union directly if you have questions or concerns 989.427.5663 or 800.759.8652
Remember, the credit union will never call, email or text you and then ask for your credit or debit card numbers.
