Received a text message this weekend:  "Dear State Department FCU customer we regret to inform you that we had to lock your account. To reactivate it please call 888 236-1289 toll free."

I don't have a State Department FCU account and even if I did I would not call them back.  I did some research on the internet today...what i found says the phone number is associated with PFN Credit Solutions in Miami, FL.  www.pfncreditsolutions.com then select the "contact us" tab. Jerks!

I received several SMSs which were obviously part of a phishing / vishing fraud attempt, where scammers are attempting to get you to call this number and enter your personal credit card details, including PIN. They will then use these numbers to withdraw money at ATMs as you.

This is actually the 1st time I have ever received a voice / SMS phishing attempt, so it was a little amusing to me.

Needless to say, don't actually enter your card number or call the 888 number in question. Your money will disappear to Ukraine or Bulgaria.
