MACU Text Scam from 929-544-7813 - Mountain America Credit Union

I got a MACU text scam from telephone number 929-544-7813. The message in the scam text says "Please log in, someone is trying to log into MACU, please log in to this ???" I know this is a scam because the telephone number is from New York and MACU is located in UTAH. And, I do not have an account with Mountain America Credit Union(MACU).

    The scam message I got says "MACU Your Online Account has been on Hold due to unusual activities. Kindly here {suspcicious link that goes my-dre@mglish.com/mine112/macu.com}

    P.S. I changed the "a" for an @ just so no one will click on the link.

    Yes, there was a typo in their message which makes me sure that it is indeed a scam.

    Be careful everyone!
