Scam Alert!

Recommended Posts

I just got a text message on my phone that said it was a "National Bank Alert" and went on to say that that my bank card starting with #### (real numbers) had been deactivated and please call this number (followed by a phone number).

I instead called my bank and they told me NOT to respond to this under any circumstance that it was indeed a scam. and it was not only effecting my bank but other banks and customers as well. They DID get the first four digits of my card right, however I was told they ONLY have those first four and somehow plan to con the rest of the digits out of you during the call..

Again, DO NOT RESPOND if you receive a similar message, this is a scam!

the first 4 digits are the Issuer Identification Number which is unique to your bank, if you know the bank, you can you pretty much get the first 4 digits.

Yes, but many people dont know this... I knew it was a scam right off, but called to confirm anyway and see what I could find out.. according to the lady atthe bank today has been a pretty big day for this particular one...
