Important Local Fraud Alert
Members are reporting that they are receiving a fraudulent text message that goes something like “This is a credit union center notice. Your card has been de-activated. Please contact us at 620-314-xxxx”. We at HCU have tried calling the number. The voice states it is a credit union activation service, asks for your credit card number, captures it, and then hangs up. By the length of time it takes to connect, our guess is that it is forwarding to an out of state or out of country destination.
