Recent & Common Financial Scams
Protect your financial and personal information by staying aware and informed. Below is information about a number of recent and common financial scams.
There has been a recent increase in fraudulent text messages received by some MSUFCU members. Although these messages have not targeted MSUFCU directly, the institutions mentioned in the messages have included other credit unions based in the Mid-Michigan area. These text messages typically state that the recipient’s account has been closed or locked out and to call a long distance number in order to have it reinstated or unlocked. This message is fraudulent. MSUFCU will never contact you via text message to request account information. If you have given out any account information using the phone number provided with these fraudulent text messages, please contact us immediately.
