BBB Warns of Credit Union Scam

Another scam is tricking Bryan/College Station residents out of money, according to the Better Business Bureau.

This one advises people by email, text or phone call that there's a problem with their credit union account.

Their purpose, according to BBB officials, is to gain access to your account.

"Don't give out any information," said Larry Lightfoot of the Better Business Bureau. "If you think it might be legitimate, get a number you can call back and then make the call, but don't volunteer it to someone you don't know."

BBB officials say scammers are currently posing as two credit unions in our area, but they anticipate the scam to spread to area banks and other financial institutions.
