Mobile text alerts are a convenient way to stay on top of your balance, deposits, payments and suspicious activity on your bank account.
But as this technology has become more popular, con artists are using it to steal your money!
Posing as your bank, scammers will send text messages that say that you need to update your profile information and provide a link to a bogus website.
So many people take the bait because the scammer’s website looks legit – often using your bank’s logo.
If you receive a message that you’re not sure about, log in from your bank’s official website or call them using the number on the back of your ATM or debit card.
