More than 40 consumers around the country have received a scam phone text message purporting to use a National Credit Union Administration phone number, the agency announced Wednesday.

Consumers who receive a text from 703-518-6301 asking for personal information should contact the agency's Consumer Assistance Center hotline at 800-755-1030.
 
The NCUA's privacy policy states that it will never request personal or financial information from consumers.
 
According to the NCUA, the perpetrators are able to mimic a telephone number to generate text messages. The messages may warn of a debit card reaching its limit or use some other trick to persuade individuals to provide personal information or go to a malicious website.
 
Consumers should not click on links in the message, provide information to any websites referenced in the message nor attempt to conduct any financial transactions through those websites.
 
This attempted fraud scam is classified as "spoofing" by the Federal Communications Commission.
