Advantage Federal Credit Union has recently received calls reporting that people have received text messages or pages on cell phones in a fraudulent attempt to gain personal information in regards to their debit card.
Advantage is confident that no member information has been compromised. Many of those who have called us to report this incident have never been members of the credit union, therefore the data could not have been obtained from any credit union files. This appears to be a scam involving random phone numbers which were somehow obtained by fraudsters.

If you are traveling out of state or country, activity on your cards may be perceived as unusual and therefore, may result in your card being blocked. To avoid any disruption while traveling, please notify our Call Center (585.454.5900, Ext. 5) before traveling out of town.
We suggest you take more than one card, preferably one being a credit card. However, we suggest that you do not carry all your cards in case your wallet gets stolen. If using another financial institution’s card, we suggest you notify them of your travel plans, as well.
