Protect yourself from recent text messaging scam

February 21, 2019

LGFCU asks you to remain vigilant for phishing scams during tax season.

Recently some members received fake text messages that seem to be alerts from LGFCU. Please do not click any links, reply to the text message or call the phone number in the message. The sender could be attempting to steal your personal or account information.

Remember, LGFCU will never text, email or call you asking for account or personal information.
