Methuen Federal Credit Union is
warning its members to be aware of fraudulent phone calls
allegedly from the Methuen FCU. Some of our members are receiving
phone calls telling them that their ATM card has been locked and
asking them for additional information.
Please do not
respond or provide any information!
Above mentioned phone calls aren't
originating from Methuen Federal Credit Union!
Methuen FCU will NEVER ask
you for sensitive information over the phone!
This is obviously a phishing
Phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to
acquire sensitive information such as Credit card or account
details, usernames, passwords, etc. by masquerading as a
trustworthy entity (e.g. our Credit Union) in an electronic
communication (phone, fax, e-mail, etc.).
If you have received suspicious phone call - please report it
to us at (978) 686-1471.
