The Hawaii Police Department is warning the public about a possible scam involving text messages.
A 59-year-old Hilo man reported that he received two consecutive text messages on Sunday claiming to be from different credit unions. The messages asked the man to call a telephone number about his credit union account. The man didn’t have accounts with either credit union.
The first phone number was out of service. The second one had a recorded message asking the caller to leave his name and personal information.
Police advise the public not to provide personal information over the phone, by text message or by e-mail.
