A recent telephone scam asking for account information has been targeting some area residents. The automated message informs consumers that their account/ATM/Debit card is about to be cancelled, or has been compromised, and it is necessary to reactivate the account/card with "bank security". The message includes the name of a local financial institution and instructs the recipient to "dial/press 1" to reactivate and then requests that the account/card number and personal identification number (PIN) be entered.
As a reminder, the credit union would not request your account information via a phone call or email message. Never provide your account/card number, PIN or personal information to anyone unless you initiated the contact. Please contact the credit union if you have provided your US #1364 Federal Credit Union account information. And also contact your local police department or the FBI at 219-769-3719.
