Scams and Alerts
Card Cracking Scam Targets Younger Members
College students are recruited through social media, including Facebook and YouTube and in-person at college campuses. Willing participants provide the fraudsters with their ATM/debit cards and PINs. The fraudsters deposit fraudulent checks (stolen or counterfeit checks) to the student accounts via ATMs and subsequently withdraw the funds. The fraudulent checks are subsequently returned unpaid and charged back to the students’ accounts. Following the fraudsters’ instructions, the participants report their ATM/debit card as lost or stolen and that the transactions were fraudulent.
Be aware that you may not be entitled to protection for unauthorized use of your ATM/debit card if you willingly provide your card to the fraudsters. Click here
