Fake Credit Union Mortgage Fraud Hits Tri-Cities
This one turned up in Richland, but police suspect more will be found.
A resident brought this into police this week, it's a card they got in the mail, claiming to be from HAPO Community Credit Union. For starters, this person doesn't have a mortgage with them, and second, neither HAPO or any other such institution will EVER send out important information in this manner.
Officials say if you get anything like this, bring it to your local police immediately. (one of the first clues? they butchered the word 'community' in the HAPO line). The reference number as well as the phone number are all bogus.
ALSO-they say DO NOT call that number on the card.
