Police are warning North Shore residents not to fall for a scam targeting Two Harbors Federal Credit Union customers.
People have been receiving text messages reading, “Two Harbors F.C.U. Notice: Your Card 4287-xxxx has been deactivated,” according to Two Harbors Police officer Nathan Gens. People who call the contact number in the text message are prompted to type in their credit card number — and then the line disconnects after the scammer receives the number.
“The Two Harbors Federal Credit Union has stated that they have nothing to do with the text messages and does not operate in that manner,” Gens wrote in a news release. “They are recommending concerned customers to come in or call the credit union directly.”
