CU members in Kansas City targeted in phone scam
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (12/12/07)--Mazuma CU members are being targeted by scammers claiming to be from the credit union. Scammers are calling the Kansas City-based Mazuma CU members, stating that their accounts have been suspended because of fraud. The caller tells the member to call a toll-free number to reactivate the account. When members call, they are asked for their credit card numbers (US Fed News Dec. 10). “This is a phishing scam--nothing more,” said Kansas City Attorney General Jay Nixon. “These crooks can put together very official-sounding phone calls, but it’s important to remember never to give out personal information to anyone who’s contacted you.” Anyone who get calls that appears to be from their financial institution should assume that it’s a scam. No legitimate organization will call or e-mail consumers asking for personal information, he added. Consumers who receive calls should report them to the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-392-822, Nixon said.
