NCUA issues warning about new text scamMore than 40 consumers around the country have received a scam text message from an NCUA phone number. According to the NCUA, the scammers are able to mimic a telephone number to generate the messages.
Some of the messages warned of a debit card reaching its limit or used some other trick to persuade individuals to provide personal information or go to a malicious website. Individuals should not click on links in the message, provide information to any websites referenced in the message or attempt to conduct any financial transactions through those websites.
Members who receive a text from (703) 518-6301 asking for personal information should contact the NCUA’s Consumer Assistance Center hotline at (800) 755-1030.
