The text to call above number as others reported appeared on my phone last night, 6/26/13.
5/30/12 As posted by Ted, I too received mutliple mobile phone text messages claiming to be Sovereign Bank. The text message was placed by 860-286-6672. The text message mis-spelled Sovereign Bank as Sove-reign. And the message advised that I should call 406-662-4705. I do not have any accounts with that bank.
Got a message supposedly from Sovereign Bank... I don't even have an account with them
My wife,Sons and I too were texted from the 406 area code number. Since neither of us have an account with Sovereign Bank none of us responded to the text. However, the more I thought about this the more I was convinced that it was a scam. Hopefully they will find the people responsible.
Received same text as others
Same as everyone else. No acct at sovereign. Also feel like a bank could spell thie name without extra hyphens. Haha.
I am glad I am not the only one that got this text message on a cell phone. I have never in my life had Sovereign Bank.

How stupid ! My first thought "Banks don't text" and not even MY bank has my cell phone number!
And it's Sunday on a holiday weekend
And I don't have anything with Sovereign bank
And the bank name has hyphens in it
Wow, I can't believe everyone just got this a few hours ago on their phone, the same exact txt msg as I got (even around the same time 11:39am est). I knew it was a scam (not a member of Sovereign), but I just can't believe so many of these are going around.
Same here, got a spam text message. I don't have an account with Sovereign.
I called the 877 number on the back of my sovereign card...it is a total scam...the woman told me they are aware of the problem and working on it but she said DO NOT CALL and DO
The jerks asked for me to call regarding my Sovereign account information--watch out, it's scamtastic Summer, take two. never give your account info out--the warning signs are if they ask for your bank account number & personal info, which your bank would NEVER do.
Philadelphia here. Got the same scam message today. I don't have a Sovereign account.
Same thing, text from Sov Bank...thank goodness I looked here first!
same message, no souvereign bank a/c ... scam
Same here! Just received a text with the same request and I too have no accounts with Sovereign Bank!
Just got a text message from S-overeig - n B-ank Notice. Please call 406-662-4705. CB 860-512-4599
my wife just got the text to dont even have a acount with sovereign also had a 860-983-4771 thanks everyone for the info
Just got a text saying the same thing about Sovereig-n B-ank Notice
Text from Sovereign Bank asking me to call. Call to that number from another phone was answered by a recorded message saying my debit card was locked. Assumed they would want my card number so hung up. Callback number listed as originator of text was 860-844-7177 which is no longer in service. Assume it was a phishing attempt.
text message with two numbers -" (860)292-8263 (S)overeign (B)ank Notice. Please call (406) 662-4705."
just got same call saying debit card has to be restated. got a call from enterprise bank last week.Unreal
Received the same text message. I also do not use Sovereign Bank...now we can get spam txt messages? Ugh. Thanks for all the info.
same thing said for me to call 406-662-4705 with call back number 860-933-8428 i won't call.
Thank you Ken- You saved me alot of worry and time by sharing your information!!
I too had texts to every line in my family plan. So much for privacy.
when would a bank call on a sunday morening anyway, i just worried that somehow there is a worm or something that sends back you phone info or can somehow record your phone calls or something. hopefully they though that i would call and give my debit number to an unverified number that sends me to a computer...
I got the text too. I don't have a sovereign bank account, so i was suspicious. thanks to all the comments above for I now know whats going on.
Received text from Sovereign Bank Telephone number 8601267124, requesting to call 4066624705.
just got text msg, I don't have a sovereign bank card
