Within the past day or two, and as recent as this morning, people are receiving scam text messages regarding bank accounts.
Text message: (specific bank name) Notification. Account Locked. Call 844-266-4604
People receiving these messages often do have an account with that particular bank, but the cell phone number is not associated with that account. And obviously this is not the way banks communicate with customers.
Please alert clients, family and friends – tell them not to respond if they receive one of these messages. And please make sure any messages are reported.
