I received a text message from this number with a link to access to address a "debit card issue". I did not go to the link because it is obviously a phishing scam. Other than posting here, does anyone know where I/we can report this? I assume it is illegal.
text from firstname.lastname@example.org:
Metabank Account Issue. Call: 6 4 6 5 7 8 8 7 1 0
I don't even have an account with Metabank. I'm not even familiar with this bank.
Also received message on Federal Government cell. Reported them to our spam monitors.
I got a message saying "my debit card is limited due to a technical error." Called the number and it asked me to enter my debit card number. I immediately hung up. This is obviously a scam.
Received a text message from email@example.com @ 10:25 am.
Metabank Account Issue call: 6465788710.
I don't have an account with them!
Obviously a scam. Maybe they will kill themselves and make us all happy.
I got a text message from firstname.lastname@example.org, telling me to call this number 646-578-8710 because my bank card was compromised and to put in my debit card number to reactive my card. These people are idiots......I filed a compalint with verizon and called my bank immedialty. Please people find something more constuctive to do with your spare time. You Morons........
Received this text message from email@example.com: Call: 646-578-8710 B a n k O f A m e r i c a N o t i c e. They almost got me to call them. Decided to check it out first. Glad I did
I got a text message yesterday saying it was Bank of America. I'm just glad I put the number in the google search and i clicked on the first link and read all of these posts about this scam before calling them back.
Moved to SC two yrs ago, miss Philly too! Never thought I'd say that, but true...friggin red neck central down here!
Called B of A, Def a scam.....phishing scam to anyone dumb enough to type in ur account number.....beware!!!
This is also my second strange text for a bank scam this week. My first one stated it was First Savings Bank, an audio message, followed by a text message with a more local number the very next day. Will see if this scam follows the same pattern. I reported the first audio message to the National Do Not Call authorities which you can do for audio messages even if you are not on the National Do Not Call List. I also registered my cell number.
received same Bank of America text msg from 215266
Definitely a Scam
I received a text around 5:45 it said firstname.lastname@example.org d e b i t c a r d i s s u e call 646 578 8710...yeah right like im going to call whoever this is esp since I didn't give my bank my cell phone number. I'm wondering if they sent out a mass msg to people in the 215 area???? Either way I'm just going to ignore this (btw) I love this site!
I just got a text from same # to call bk of America. I'm curious as to how they got my cell phone#. I rarely use this #.
just got it too in Denver - March 2 5:40
Second weird "bank" call this week -
also got two calls from a "Fisrt Savings" asking for personal info to fix my debt card

I've never used western union prepaid anything, def seems like a scam to me
Some unknown entity sent me a text message telling me to call up that number followed by the name, Western Union Prep Issu.
My wife and I each received text messages an hour apart (around 5:30 PM on 3/2) from this number. What is the text number that shows first 'firstname.lastname@example.org'? We aren't very technically oriented so I wondered if this was the scammer's web address or something similar. They left a message about a critical technical issue with our bank debit card. When I called, they asked for all the pertinent info. Like I was going to be dumb enough to give it to them. Call my bank to verify if it was a scam and they agreed. Glad I found this site sort of by accident.
text ...debit card issue wanted me to enter debit card #...within minutes all cell phones in house got same message
txt: Western Union card get problems. I donot have any. They asked for 16 card number to reactivate my card. They should be in jail
just got a text from this # message stating call regarding western union prepaid this is definitely a scam - text came from email@example.com my cell is on do not call list but these bottom feeders could care less about the do not call list.

On a possibly related note, I just gave my number to ifttt.com for automated txting and downloaded an ap for screen shots yesterday if anyone else did the same thing...
debit card issue
I got a text message from email@example.com telling me to call 646-578-8710 for a Western Union Card Issue. I don't have a Western Union Card and I've actually never even used Western Union. I'm not responding and not calling.
a text from firstname.lastname@example.org...
saying: Call 646-578-8170 Western Union Card Issue.
I have no idea what they are talking about. Not responding...
I just got a message from this number on my work cell and then also on my personal cell. I called from my work phone and they asked for my Visa/Debit card number to reactivate. It's a total scam. Is there any way to stop this or report it?
