TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- Police are warning the Tri-Cities community about a phone scam involving people posing as Gesa Credit Union employees.
According to the West Richland Police Department, scammers are calling people to tell them there's been an unauthorized charge to their account.
The scammers then ask for credit card information for fraudulent purposes.
"The phone number that shows on your phone display is showing up as Gesa Credit Union, but it is not," police said. "Be aware that with computer technology they are able to show a different number than what they are calling from."
Local residents are advised to spread the word to friends and family.
