I received text message from Unverified Sender Oct. 25, 2011 and it read "(9172468911)Wells Fargo ZFEV alert 433723. Please call (985)-951-1092." Call back phone # is the 9172468911 and my research leads me to believe it is an India cell phone #. I do not have a Wells Fargo acct, so I did not call. They may make money for every call they receive or possibly they are trying to get banking information.
EXACT MESSAGE: CALL 1+(985) 951 1092 H.S.B.C
Received 11-2-11 at 1:01pm est
Have no accounts or any type of business with HSBC...fraud
As other here I received 20 texts saying they were from HSBC and to call 9859511092 . They were all from firstname.lastname@example.org
I got a text message to call this number regarding a bank account with HSBC. I didn't have a bank account with HSBC and when I called HSBC to report this I was the one treated like I was a criminal. Finally got my message through to the fraud security folk at HSBC that I was just trying to alert them. Took me half an hour to get through to them - so much for no good deed goes unpunished - LOL. Wished I had seen these postings earlier
I received 4 on one day from email@example.com
message Please call HSBC - 9859511092
I called the number from another phone. It's a scam to get your banking info.
I don't bank with HSBC so I just disregarded the message. Where the hell are they getting all these 917 numbers and who has the time to do this??
Text sent from (917) 828-2137 Saying: HSBC PMQQ alert 372529 Please call (985) 951-1092
Don't have anything to do with HSBC!
Just Spoke with HSBC and this is definitely fraud. They are already working on the problem. I was told do not respond to any texts as they would never send one.
I got a text on my cell phone today from 917.479.7438 concerning "HSBC DLNC alert 837238. please call 985.951.1092.
I have never got a message like that before BUT I did just start doing business with Wells Fargo. So I would suggest that someone at WF look inside their organization to see where the leak is becuase I have been banking with HSBC for 15 years and they never had my cell phone #!
Get with it WF bank you have someone snatching account information.
Mine says HSBC YQLW alert. Call 985 etc.
Any real bank would not text you, let alone I don't even have an HSBC account.
Agreed. Don't have an HSBC account and just got a text from them asking to call. No thanks...
