Two CUs report telephone scams
LONGMONT, Colo., and CHICOPEE, Mass. (9/26/08)--Two credit unions reported scams this week involving telephone calls, fraudulent e-mails and text messages to members and non-members. St. Vrain Valley CU, Longmont, Colo., said members and non-members of the credit union reported fraudulent telephone calls from scammers attempting to obtain personal financial information. The area codes of 303, 720 and 970 are being targeted, the credit said on its website. The calls claim to be from St. Vrain, saying recipients’ cards have been suspended and inviting them to reactivate after they give out personal information. Polish National CU, Chicopee, Mass., also reported that fraudulent e-mails, text messages and telephone calls were sent to credit union members and non-members. The messages said that their accounts had been suspended due to a billing failure. If the recipients responded to the e-mail, they were linked to a fake online banking site or given a phone number to call. They were asked to submit their credit card number and personal identification number to reactivate the account, the credit union said on its website.
