“Credit Card Disabled” Texts

Members of various credit unions have been receiving fraudulent text messages stating their credit card has been disabled and advising them to call 616-285-8994, at which point they hear an automated message telling them that their credit union is attempting to collect a debt from them. While this phone number belongs to a legitimate debt-collection agency, the texts are not legitimate. The members’ credit cards are not disabled, and they don’t owe their credit union any money. Please be advised to disregard this text and not to call the phone number listed if you should receive a text similar to this.
