        Sorry good luck. My account got drained of almost 2000$. ~

    7:48 thanksgiving night got the same text from same number.

    Called the # and an automated system asked me my card info saying my account was locked and they needed it to protect my account.

    Being an idiot I gave it to them, but became suspicious right after.

    I called my card provider and they informed me somebody had just changed my pin.

    I cancelled the card before they got any money thank god, but still have to wait 2 weeks for a new card to access my money.

    BEWARE ~

    I received a text this morning stating the following:

    alert@vtext.net
    "(Contact us immediately) Fraudulent activity in your account or stolen information contact us immediately by calling 1.406.872.0026"

    This seemed like a scam immediately, which is what led me to this page via a simple Google search.

    I have also received two different phone calls from different phone numbers, both automated messages urging me to contact them immediately.

    One of the calls only has a supposed phone number of "1"... Both messages were identical and stated that there were not any problems with my credit account and that I still needed to contact them immediately concerning my credit account.

    However, neither call would even state the name of the creditor account in which it supposedly concerns, not to mention I do not have any open-ending credit lines outside of my primary bank.

    My cell phone is not through Verizon either and I have never had a phone that was with Verizon's service.

    Nothing against them directly, I just do not like contracts.

    The potential that something is wrong with my credit does concern me, though I know that this is obviously a scam.

    They need to stop attempting to contact me. If there are any issues concerning my credit or any of my accounts, then I would most likely receive physical mail correspondence from my bank and/or creditors. Be advised... ~

Now they started sending them to my email box, which somehow FORWARDED them to my cell phone. This is getting REALLY creepy. How do they do this and not get caught?

    Received a call from a "blocked" unknown number. It was a recording stating that my Bank of the Cascades mastercard has been blocked and to push "1" to go to account management. I do not have any account with Bank of the Cascades (never even heard about this bank). I believe this is a fraudulent call. ~

    I received a text message from 60253112 @vtext.com asking me to contact wells fargo at 16024123198, when I dialed, an automated service answered telling me my debit card had some fraudulent activity and asked for my social and card number, I gave them my social and hung up before I could give them my card number because I thought something weird of it. When I called Wells Fargo they told me no such text had been sent out from there end, so I immediately called LifeLock and reported what had happened. ~

    So far I have received this text 5 or 6 times (in one form or another) on my cell phone but it's "general message" is usually the same. It says the following:


    It has come from 919920554@vtext.com and states:

    It has come from 91030501 @vtext.com and states:

    The call from 91026022 @vtext.com and states:

    Now I KNOW these are just scammers. I have NO business with Southern Bank at all. A reverse look-up has them in or close to Winchester, KY. I only know 1 person in KY and I already them their cell/home numbers.

    So just BEWARE of anyone wanting you to contact them if you have NO business interests with whomever they are trying to be. ~

    This was the txt I received from 2055681@vtext.com
    on my iphone with Verizon wireless. The vtext number similar to my cell #. I called the # with no answer. I didn't think much about it until shortly after, my phone was not operating properly. It runs much slower, the screen flashes or blinks quickly when opening an app. I have also been experiencing frequently dropped calls. When this occurred last week I also realized I had received phone calls
    from someone's gmail account through google talk? Could this be related? It's odd how it all occurred simultaneously. Please help, I am an easy target for slacking hackers. ~

Then today, January 13, 2014 I got a text from 70697099@vtext.com stating that the Achieve Card had been blocked due to fraud and to call 888-882-2836. I did not call but googled the number and it came up as not existing. The 706-968-1209 came up as a Verizon cell in Hartwell, Ga. The other number that was on the text stating a card had been activated was 415-877-3114 and it is located in San Francisco. I did not reply or call any of these numbers. If you know you have not requested or activated a card DO NO RESPOND to these idiots and even if you have this card never give unsolicited information to anyone. It is all about people too lazy to work for a living trying to scam those of us who make money the honest way. If they would put this much thought and energy into a legitimate job we would all be happy and not have to worry about people trying to rob us. ~

    I knew it was a scam because, 1: I don't have an Achieve Card 2: Banks and Financial Institutions always refer to cards by the last 4 digits, not the first 6, and 3: It came from a "@vtext.com" number that happens to have the same first 6 digits of my cell phone number, so most likely it was computer generated.

    Some one sent me a text last night saying my credit card was on hold and wanted my credit card # to call 800 494 5159 and give them my 16 digit card number. It came from 502-216-9281. ~

    I just got a text from these a-holes that stated that my debit card was limited, and to reactivate it to enter the debit card number. Ballsy. ~

    Received a text from @vtext.com asking to call Wells Fargo. We don't bank with Wells Fargo. We forwarded it to VZ and reported it as spam. ~

    My 87 year old mother received one of those texts yesterday and actually responded to it and gave them her full social security number because she thought her debit card had been compromised! These people are sick. Does anyone know what they're doing with the information they extract from innocent people? We contacted the bank involved so those accounts are safe, but now they have her social. ~

    To block all @VTEXT.com messages go to My Verizon and navigate to "Internet Spam Blocking". Add @VTEXT.com in one of the blank spaces then check both boxes. Hit apply ~

  • Posted: Nov 23, 2013 ago by an anonymous user from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States:

    What a relief to find some explanation. I just got a text that simply read: "Call 3103888161 HuntingtonNB." This threw me off because I have my car loan through Huntington and had just made my monthly payment at a local branch yesterday.
    I'm glad I went with my gut and did not call! ~

    I received a text from vtext.com said (First Harrison Bank) Call 818-760-5448. Your immediate attention is required. I do not have any accounts with this bank and I do not have any data plan on my phone. Last week I received like 5 phone calls from an Indianapolis number, I sent a text to it asking who this is and they responded it was from vtext.com and something about a .25 cent charge to my account for texting them so I responded to stop calling my phone and it has stopped but I want to know how to stop these texts. ~

    No one opened an account with your phone. This is scam. Do respond to theses bogus text messages from vtext.com. It seems a scammer got hold of your banking information and is trying to use it to scam. ~

    A few Weeks ago, I received a text msg saying- 224381@vtext.com Walmart money card acct issue 544856XXXXXXXXXX Call 5094673804.

    I did not call then, thinking maybe wrong number- 224381 being the beginning of my number. Also since it was just a money card and those have to be loaded personally it didn't really concern me.

    However, earlier today I received a similar txt msg saying- 224730@vtext.com Best bank 434254XXXXXXXXXX acct issue Call 9098751902.

    At first, ignored, but after thinking about it, thought I had better call because this was more than a money card, this was an actual bank acct. Called number; constant busy signal. Thought I'd check out previous number; screeching fax machine type noise. This alarms me. Can someone open an account w/my phone and possibly steal my identity? ~
