I also got a simular MACU text scam from 727-459-1259 located in Florida. If you have received a Macu text scam, please share it in a comment below along with the telephone number it came from. Do not click the link in it because it goes to a phishing website that steals account credentials, personal and financial information.
To protect yourself and others against phishing and other cybersecurity attacks, consider these security measures:
- Mountain America will never contact you and ask you to provide your online banking password, codeword or six-digit code. Don’t respond to emails or text messages that request personal information. If you have any doubt, call our service center at 1-800-748-4302.
- If you receive a suspicious email claiming to be from Mountain America, forward it as an attachment to email@example.com. Learn how to spot a phishing email.
- If you opened a questionable link and shared your login credentials, codeword, PIN or other sensitive information, please call the service center at 1-800-748-4302.
- Change your password using a complex password—a mixture of capital and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols. Make sure it’s at least eight characters long. Never reuse a password.
