PARK HILLS, Mo. (3/11/10)--Phone calls about ATM cards, purporting to be from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), flooded the Park Hills, Mo., area last weekend, said a local newspaper. The calls are a phishing scam and are not from CUNA. The automated messages hit Sunday morning and told recipients that their ATM or debit card had been deactivated, said the Daily Journal (March 9). Several recipients contacted the newspaper. The calls went to customers and members of a variety of financial institutions, including people who do not have an ATM or debit card. One woman called the number in the message and was asked for her bank account number. She knew her bank wouldn't call and ask for information it already had, so she hung up. Others who called the number were asked for their bank account number, PIN and the card's security code. The calls allegedly came from overseas. Similar calls were received in Greeley, Colo., this time using the names of Weld Schools CU, a Greeley-based credit union, and the local Wells Fargo Bank (Greeley Tribune March 9). The credit union told the local newspaper it had received 200 calls about the calls, which were directed to both members and non-members. Authorities warned consumers not to give out numbers and key information to callers.
