ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Aug. 23, 2016) – 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.
Please contact NCUA's Consumer Assistance Center at 1-800-755-1030 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern if you receive one of these messages. NCUA also recommends contacting your credit union and local law enforcement.
You may also contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center.
If you suspect you may have become a victim of identity theft as a result of this scam, you should immediately contact the three major credit bureaus and request a fraud alert be placed on your credit report: Equifax (866-640-2272), Experian (888-397-3742), and TransUnion (855-681-3196).
NCUA is the independent federal agency created by the U.S. Congress to regulate, charter and supervise federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of more than 103 million account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions.
