We have been informed that scam text messages are being circulated in our area. Fraudsters set their equipment to randomly select phone numbers in our area code. The message states it is an Online Banking Alert from Bank of America. It informs the receiver that their debit card is locked and asks them to click on a link to unlock the card (an example is shown to the right).
Please be aware that this is a scam. If you get one of these types of messages, do not respond. Fraudsters are trying to get you to disclose your card numbers, PIN numbers and possibly other personal information.
