Attorney General Conway Issues Alert to Commonwealth Credit Union Members
Attorney General Jack Conway today issued a warning to Commonwealth Credit Union members who received a recorded message on Wednesday claiming that their credit cards had been suspended.
"This is a scam," General Conway said. "Our investigators have received several complaints and confirmed with representatives from Commonwealth Credit Union that this is a hoax and may be an attempt to compromise members' accounts."
The message asks people to call a phone number. When callers dial the toll-free number, they are then instructed to enter their credit-card numbers to reactivate the accounts.
"Do not respond to this message," General Conway warned. "Commonwealth Credit Union has informed our investigators that it will never make calls to members asking for personal information."
Members and non-members of Commonwealth Credit Union have reported receiving calls on their cell, work and home phones.
