PEORIA, Ill. – CEFCU is warning members of a “Smishing Text” scam.

CEFCU posted this alert on its Facebook page on Thursday. The scam is an attempt to receive members’ personal information.

Members are asked if they approved a purchase, prompting them to text back a “Y” for yes and “N” for no. However they respond, the member then receives a call from a number that appears to be from CEFCU. The person on the other line will then try to get the member’s personal banking information.

The credit union company is asking customers if they receive this message to please contact them at 1-800-633-7077
