Mountain Laurel Federal Credit Union has received reports of a scam where a member receives a text message to call a 1-888-number immediately about their Visa/Debit card. The fraudster may ask you for information related to your personal information, card, online and mobile banking credentials, or account information. This is a scam designed by fraudsters to convince you to share your most sensitive account information. Be assured, Mountain Laurel Federal Credit Union will never ask you to provide your account number, log-in credentials, your full card number and expiration, CVV code, or PIN. Do not respond to these texts or calls.
