COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) — Ent Credit Union customers are being targeted by scammers, according to an alert sent recently by the company.
Scammers call people pretending they are contacting the Ent call center.
“If the member answers the spam call, the person on the other line claiming to be with Ent will usually ask for the member’s online banking username and password,” one post read. of Ent Credit Union. “If the member gives this information over the phone, the scammer will try to log into their account using the information provided.”
If someone falls for this scam, a “verification” code should be sent to their phone. Ent Credit Union reminds its customers not to share this verification code with anyone.
“This gives the scammer full access to the member’s account,” Ent Credit Union explained of the verification code. “They can then transfer the funds and empty the account, depriving the blind member.”
Ent says employees will never ask for the following information over the phone:
- Credit or debit card PIN.
- Online banking username and password.
- Account number or routing number.
- CVV2 code on the back of your credit or debit card.
- Full social security number.
