AG’s Office Warns of Text Message Scam

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Fraudulent text messages being sent out that claim to be from Santa Fe’s Guadalupe Credit Union

The New Mexico Attorney General’s Office is warning people to not respond to text messages claiming to be from Santa Fe’s Guadalupe Credit Union.

The agency said in a news release Thursday that Guadalupe Credit Union has reported it is aware of two similar fraudulent texts now circulating in New Mexico alleging to be from the credit union. The credit union does not text its members or request information by e-mail or telephone.

One of the fraudulent text states, “Guadalupe CU Alert: Your card starting with 4671 has been deactivated. Please contact us at 505 216-0695 to reactivate your card.”

Guadalupe Credit Union is asking its members to report receipt of this type of text message to 505-982-8942, the news release said. Anyone receiving a text who is not a member of Guadalupe Credit Union should report it to their financial institution.
