The state Attorney General’s Office is advising people not to respond to texts claiming to be from Kirtland Federal Credit Union.

The AG’s Office said in a news release Monday that Kirtland Federal Credit Union reports that it is aware of a text messaging scam circulating in the Albuquerque area alleging to be from the credit union.

The fraudulent text says, “Your Kirtland Federal Credit Union Visa check card starting with #### has been temporarily blocked. Call 990-0360.”

The news release said anyone receiving this type of text should not respond.

Kirtland Federal Credit Union does not text its members or request information by e-mail or telephone, according to the news release.
