Scammers Pose as River Region Credit Union
JEFFERSON CITY - River Region Credit Union President and CEO Rick Nichols told KOMU 8 News Monday that scammers have been targeting his institution's customers recently.
Nichols said some mid-Missourians are getting a text message from a phone number claiming to be River Region Credit Union. The text messages tell recipients their account has been deactivated, and tells them to enter private account information.
Nichols said no financial institution would ask you for information in this manner. Nichols said other financial institutions like Central Bank have had the same problem recently with scammers posing as the bank.
Nichols said customers should never give out their information and should call the bank directly if they have financial questions or problems.
