July 6, 2015 — CO-OP Financial Services has notified LAPFCU of a mobile text phishing scam that certain credit unions are experiencing. This fraudulent attempt to capture account information is done with an automated SMS/text message referring to the sender as CO-OP Mobile.
The text message requests members to enter their account information (including ATM PIN number). Members should avoid clicking links within the text messages and not respond to these messages that request account information.
CO-OP Mobile SMS/text messages never ask members for account information including ATM PIN numbers. Members that may have responded to this scam should change their password as well as their PIN immediately.
If you receive a suspicious text of this nature, please notify LAPFCU immediately by calling 877-MY-LAPFCU (877-695-2732).
