So, I finally called my Credit Union to learn that they are working with state officials and other credit unions to get to the bottom of this. Apparently, the scam artists running this scam have gotten access to home as well as cell phone numbers and clearly email addresses too. I called my local tv station and understandably, they have their hands full with the election. Well, I'll stay on top of this to the best of my ability and let you know what happens.
