SCAM ALERT!! February 5, 2021 – Within the last few days, two members of a PA credit union received phone calls with a caller ID showing their credit union’s phone number.  They each picked up and an individual claiming to be from their credit union spoke with them and explained they were reaching out regarding large transactions from Home Depot on the members’ credit cards.  The individual was able to provide the full credit card numbers, as well as the CVV number to the members over-the-phone and requested the members click on a link that would be sent to them via text message to provide additional personally identifiable information (SSN, DOB, etc.).  Please remember that we will NEVER call or send unsolicited texts requesting your personal information.
