Another Gesa Scam Hits Cell phones

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  In a consumer alert: another round of scam text messages claiming to be from Gesa Credit Union.

We've told you about these scams before: people receiving text messages about their account being deactivated.  It gives you a number to call to re-activate your card.  But beware, this is a scam.

Officers say do not give out any of your personal information.

"If they have truly done that, somebody from the bank will call and have you come down to the bank and verify it through that," says officer Stan Howard of the Kennewick Police.  "Don't send anything over your telephone, your text messages or computer."

Kennewick police say they received ten phone calls Saturday concerning the text messages.  They also say neighboring cities like Richland and West Richland got similar complaints.
