My carrier is Boostmobile on Nextel network. I received a txt msg like these about a BofA card being locked; call (713) 955-0139. No biggie, although i got two messages within an hour. I don't bank at BofA, so i ignored it but i was curious. It's not just Verizon, because Boostmobile is on Nextel's network.
Received a text on Nov 23rd from "Unverified Sender (9173388219)B@nkOfAmerica@TCZJ. alert 382561. Please call 4069244635". CB#4069244635. I did text back and asked who they were - no reply.
Am also in Houston and a Verizon customer.
Nope - won't be calling.
Received message Nov 23 from 917-773-9833 about alert 624411 from B Of America and to call 406-924-4635. Did not call. My cell phone is Verizon wireless in Houston.
Mine said, "KGVF alert 937146" but the call back numbers were the same.
I got the message yesterday, I called the actual # (917-664-3913) that sent it to me and threatened them with prosecution but they denied knowing anything about it
Recently got a call from this number:
"FYPT Alert 983993. Please call (406)-9244635"
Got the same message. The (917) 562-5736 number shows up as a wireless number out of Brooklyn, NY. Did not call. Thanks everyone who posted on this. Also a Houston verizonwireless customer.
It's a random Area Code & # routine, does not mean any numbers were sold or compromised by either Verizon or Bank of America.. BUT it is a SCAM.
Reported this to Verizon & Bank of America Fraud Departments !!
Just recieved the same text on my Iphone, B@nkofAmeric@ SKET alert 588833. Please call 406-924-4635. Called BoA and reported.
just re'cvd that message-=-thanks-wasn't going to call it back--appreciate heads up
I just got the same message. I am in houston and a verizon wireless customer. I got "[Unverified-Sender] (9178756113) YBFi alert 151106. Please call (406)-924-4635
BANK OF AMERICA AND VERIZON CUSTOMER...I checked the mentioned number above and it came back to India?! Anyways, SCAMMERS!!! wonder if Verizon is the reason Bank of America issued a new card to me under the premises that my information had been compromised with an anonymous company???
also Verizon user!!
Yep, Bank of America customer and Verizon...Wow, wonder if this is why Bank of America sent me a new card recently saying an anonymous company had a security breach so they had to reissue a new card with a different account number. My account was fine, but I didn't know who the "anonymous" company was...
Both my husband and I received this text msg. Thanks for the heads up! We know not to call them back :/
what's going on? it seems that a lot of blackberry verizon users in houston are receiving the same text. It seems scam all the way, don't call back!
just recvd msg by text told to call 406-924-4635.... pretending to be Bank of America
Got this message 30 minutes ago saying Bank of America gold debit card has been locked. I have cancelled my card as of now. Got a text message on phone that was not a blackberry and I use Verizon.
I was wondering how these jerks got my phone number...Thanks verizon for the security measures!
Same here, I live in Houston and with Verizon...Mine says "[Unverified-Sender] (9179851141) B@nkofAmeric@ DZTP alert 625634. Please call (406)-924-4635
Whatever you do - dont call these jack*** hackers. I reported them to the FBI of Texas. They center your info by many sources then shred your finances. I am going to beat the s*** out of these punks if I ever catch them in person.
They never got me but many elderly are destroyed by these punks.
I am also a Verizon user in Houston. Thanks Verizon Houston for your pathetic security measures. We should class action this division for one of their managers selling our info.
Same here. Im Also in Houston and a Verizon customer. They have called twice and texted once.

They send you a text with an alert and it says to call 4069244635. The recording says your gold debit card is locked and for you to unlock it you have to put in the #.
