Cu Community Credit Union members should be aware of a smishing scam that is circulating in the Springfield area. Mobile phone users are receiving fraudulent text messages that claim their CU Community Credit Union debit card has been deactivated for security reasons. The text messages claim that cardholders must call a 417 number and provide personal information to reactivate their cards. This is a scam.
Never provide personal information in response to unsolicited text messages, emails or phone calls—even if they appear to be from legitimate businesses. If you receive such text messages, ignore them. If you have questions or concerns about your account, call us at 417.865.3912.
