Credit unions in Mississippi have been the subject of scams recently. The perpetrators have used many vehicles to attempt to acquire members' personal information. These include: messages to cellular phones saying that the individual's credit union account was blocked and asking the recipient to call a number where an automated attendant asked for debit card numbers and pins; e-mails and phone calls to cellular and home phones linking to a clone of the subject's credit union's banking page; and bombarding a credit union with over 60,000 e-mails on one day.
