Text Message Scam Alert!
There's a new scam that fraudsters are using to obtain your personal financial information, and it's coming to a cell phone near you.
Beware of text message scams!
This new scam involves unsolicited text messages sent to cell phones. The message urges the recipient to call a number provided for information about account discrepancies and then solicits individual account information and pin numbers.
Cell phone users should be wary of unsolicited text messages. Such messages should be deleted and all deleted text messages should be removed, if possible, as the perpetrators have been known to use Spyware in conjunction with their text message solicitation.
Scams such as these could be used to obtain personally identifiable information and bank/credit union account access information, for those who access their accounts using their cell phones.
Please know that we at National Iron Bank will NEVER contact you via text message. If you suspect that you have been a victim of a text message scam, contact us immediately!
