Thanks for the information-I will spread it around and post this on my facebook page.
I just received text from Beneficial Bank-I knew it was a scam because I don't have an account there. 877-684-6966. I called and gave them fake number and fake pin, then I had them read it back twice to waste their time. Then I talked for about 2 minutes as if I was a lonely old man and told them I had lots of other accounts in the city. My phone is blowing up with different banks with fraud alerts. This is hilarious!
I got a txt this morning. It said it was urgent from beneficial bank. It told me urgent message and to call a number (which I wouldn't even dare to call) and then said: XXXXXXXXXIssue and it said my attention was needed. I totally knew it was a scam. A: Because I don't have anything to do with beneficial bank.
B: I am a MINOR. I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW I EVEN GOT THE MESSAGE.
I mean, how did they even get my number!?!? Let alone I got it from a number that only had 6 digits.
CALLED MY HOUSE 8 TIMES YESTERDAY, AND HANGS-UP
Got a text message from 2158046780 from First Savings Bank ALERT
My card 433214000xxxx has been temporarily deactivated.Call 2153441605 First Saving 24hr line
I have no accounts with First Savings and will not call, similar response below, said he called and auto receptionist ask for debit card info
Just got a text message from Beneficial Bank saying that my credit limit on my card was mistakenly lowered because of computer error and asking me to call 215.331.0133 to have my credit limit reinstated. I do not have an account or a credit card with Beneficial Bank. I called the number from another phone and it asked for the last 4 digits of your SSN and then for your credit card number. This sounds like a scam to me.

i received same thing. . after every third number was a space then a dash then a space then another 3 numbers. i didnt call just deleted it
Received like message on 3/8/12 about a problem with my beneficial account. All your messages and information stated above were very helpful. I figured it was best not to call the number.
Got one 3-8-12 6:30pm stating found a problem in your silver acct. Call Really? Asked for a full refund on it, but they don't take return text msg. Is it possible it's just a US number used to relay garbage from another one of those 3rd world country scams? Darn, really hoped it was an account I had forgot about. Darn no silver lining after-all.
This phone number belongs to a company called Xilogix, LLC. I ran a trace and even called Michael Vassen, the general manager who confirmed owning the phone number. the website is xilogix.net and their main phone number is 678-255-2600. I've reported this to the Atlanta Secret Service.
Perhaps you all should *67 and call Mr. Mike at 678-255-2600 and ask him to explain why one of his company's phone numbers is trying to scam people.
Oh, and provide this information to as many websites as you possibly can:
I researched the number and it belongs to a company Xilogix, LLC in Atlanta, GA. Ironically it's a technology company; you do the math... I called their main number and the General Manager Michael A. Vassen answered and I asked him if he knew the number. He admitted the number belonged to Xilogix and then I disconnected the call.
His companies website is xilogix.net.
A quick business search shows this url http://corp.sos.state.ga.us/corp/soskb/Corp.asp?159475 provides the business address of 2812 Spring Road SE, Suite 210, Atlanta GA 30339 for Xilogix, LLC.
text was from email@example.com
"problem with your Silver account - please call ........"
Haha, I have a platinum account but nice try.
I got a text saying that I needed to review my sprintPCS account.
text from this number. wanting credit card info. says it's "Beneficial Bank alert".
The newest one is "Metabank" . I never call or respond - Just DELETE !
My son and I received the same text, on the same day, at the same time. We didn't respond or call the number - DELETE! I just have to add that I am so tired of getting these random, crazy, scam type phone calls or text messages.
I received the text from this number - firstname.lastname@example.org stating Hello. We found a problem in your Metabank. Call 678....1) Why is 'Sprint' asking about my Metabank. 2) I have never hear of Metabank.
We must be very careful when receiving any of this messages by phone or text.
I got a text from email@example.com on March 6 2012
Text : Hello . We found a problem with your Metabank . Call 678-255-2632
I don't have a Metabank don't even know if such a bank exists. CLEARLY A SCAM and very annoying !
Maybe they decided to change from First Savings to Metabank?
Just received a text saying.... [Western. Union : Notice][Call - 1678 - 2552 - 632]
Got a text saying Call 678-255-2632. BENEFICIAL BANK Alert.

I just received the same message from beneficial bank - no account there so I did not call.
I received a text message to call 678-255-2623 from firstname.lastname@example.org. Check your cell phone provider - they usually have controls where you can block numbers and web addresses. Verizon wireless has it under spam control, internet option.
Same txt msg just now from Beneficial.
Received a text from this number with reference to beneficial bank. Don't have an account there, so I deleted.
Got a text today, claimed to be BENEFICIAL BANK. I have no accounts at beneficial. Did not respond.
Got a text from "beneficial savings bank" saying "ALERT. Don't have an account with Beneficial so I did not call the number. Based on the other 'replies' it seems this is a scam.
