Beware of New Text Phishing Scam

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has received consumer calls about a suspicious text message claiming to come from the agency.

The message reads: "National Credit Union Administration Alert for (recipient's phone number). Contact 844-234-5445."

This is not a communication from NCUA. The agency does not seek personal information through the internet or on the phone.

Please contact NCUA's Consumer Assistance Center at 1-800-755-1030 between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Eastern if you receive one of these messages. NCUA also recommends you call your credit union.
