Scambusters: Texting Scams: What to Do?

Texting Scams: What to Do?

Text scams occur when a criminal sends a text message to a cell phone under false pretenses. The criminal tries to trick the consumer into entering personal information either on a bogus phone line or website. The criminal then uses the information to steal from the consumers account.

These criminals are not targeting one financial institution, or specific cell number, but are using prefix numbers, such as 484 and an auto dialer that distinguishes the number as a cell. So consumers need not think that the number was obtained as part of their personal information.

With a rise in texting scams, major cell carriers are offering an easy reporting system when a scam is suspected. When consumers get a text they think is a scam, they can forward it to the number 7726. By doing so, the originator of the scam can be monitored and disconnected to prevent future losses.

In addition, you can contact the credit union at 610-691-0041 to make us aware of the situation.
