Take Care With Scam Messages
We have been made aware of some scam text messages circulating purporting to be from a Credit Union. These massages do not name any specific credit union, and are targeting credit union members Nationwide.
Please always think carefully when you receive a text message which appears to be from any institution. Ask Yourself:
- Does this message seem real, are there any spelling & grammar mistakes? (These are common in scams, but not always the case).
- Were you expecting this text? Does it seem out of character?
- Does it come into the same conversation on your phone as legitimate SMS from Altura? (probably not).
- Does is ask you to reply, or click on a link contained in the message? (We will NEVER do this).
Please see below images of some scams doing the rounds right now.
