It has been brought to our attention that there is a CO-OP Mobile text phishing scam that other area Credit Unions are experiencing. This fraudulent attempt to capture account information is done with an automated SMS/text message referring to themselves as CO-OP Mobile.
The text message requests members to enter their account information (including ATM PIN number). Members should avoid clicking links within the text messages and not respond to these messages that request account information.
CO-OP Mobile SMS/text Messages do NOT ask members for account information including ATM PIN numbers. Members that may have felt they have responded to this scam should change their password as well as their PIN immediately.
There are many ways for perpetrators to attempt to get personal information, including the use of auto-dialers and text messages. It is important to limit the release of personal information in order to protect yourself from fraud.
