LEOMINSTER, Mass. – Members of two local credit unions are being warned to keep a close eye on accounts linked to their debit cards after some apparently fraudulent activity was noticed.

Both GFA FCU in Gardner and Leominster CU posted warnings on their websites, and GFA e-mailed its members, as well. People calling Leominster CU were given a warning about fraudulent debit card activity in states other than Massachusetts.

The warnings indicated that the fraudulent transactions appear to be happening out of state.

The credit unions said they have implemented measures that could cause members’ debit cards to be declined for certain transactions.
