From EvansvilleWatch on Facebook: Warrick County Dispatch says they are getting calls from Heritage Federal Credit Union customers reporting a scam. The customers say they are getting a text message asking them to call a number due to a problem with their bank account. When called, the person asks you for your private account information. Dispatch said they were contacting Heritage Federal to let them know this was going on. People throughout Warrick and Vanderburgh County, even those who do not bank at HFCU, have reported on EvansvilleWatch that they have received the message asking them to call.
Please, DO NOT CALL! This is definitely a scam. If you did reply to the message and gave your account information, contact your bank/credit card holder immediately.
Update: 12:30pm > Heritage Federal Credit Union has posted the following message on their website:
