Air Academy Federal Credit Union Text Scam Making The Rounds

A text messaging scam KKTV 11 News first warned you about earlier this month is still going strong.

11 News received a number of calls from viewers who have received a text message that appears to be from the Air Academy Federal Credit Union.

It warns that a credit card you have is locked and that you need to call a certain number to get it unlocked. But do not call. It is a scam.

The crooks just want your personal banking information and may want to steal your identity. So if you receive a suspicious message from your bank, call them first to make sure it is real.

    Must be making rounds again, just received a call saying my account was locked and to press 1 to speak to a rep. Unfortunately my work phone does not have caller ID. No one here has an AAFCU Account either. 5/3/2010

    I received a recorded telephone message june 16 rather than a text message from the same people. The call back number given was 520-303-9713. I have never had an acct with the credit union.

    Well, for me I don't have an account with AAFCU. I never recieve text messages from anyone except with Sprint, my phone provider, and that was in 2008. I ignored the text message, but I'm glad that I typed this t.isp@aafcu.com address on the internet and found out it's a scam. I'm going to delete the message. With Sprint, as long as I don't text message back to the Bonehead(s) that sent the Scam messages I will not be charged with the fee.

    I received the same text messages. I filled out a complaint with the FTC online.

    I have also recieved these annoying text messages. What scares me is they not only had my cell phone. But they also gave my debit card #(which I have not pulled out of my wallet in a year or more). I got one txt from email addy severices1972@aafcu.com and another txt yesterday from 3520. The best you can do is call the customer sevrice number for Air Academy bank and they will report the A-holes doing this! Then hopefully if enough people report it they will STOP!

    Emily thanks for that info! I called Tmo yesterday to see if there was a way to block it and wasn't old about the email blocking. Thanks again, hopefully this will do the trick and they will leave us alone.
