NCUA Warns of Text Phishing Scam
Wednesday, August 24, 2016 6:40 AM

The National Credit Union Administration has received consumer calls about a suspicious text message​ claiming to come from the agency. The message reads: “National Credit Union Administration Alert for (recipient's phone number). Contact 844-234-5445.”

This is not a communication from NCUA. The agency does not seek personal information through the internet or on the telephone.

Consumers are asked to contact NCUA's Consumer Assistance Center at 800-755-1030 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (ET) if they receive one of these messages.

NCUA also advises them to contact their credit union and local law enforcement, or the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center.

NCUA operates an online Fraud Prevention Center that offers information about avoiding frauds and scams on its MyCreditUnion.gov​ website.
