        Hi,

        I just did the same thing. Went to Wells Fargo and a banker said they will issue a new debit or credit card and they have a fraud protection program, it's like 13$ a month it will monitor your account and credit score and if someone tries to use your social, you will relieve an email or phone call

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

    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.

    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... ~

    I recieved a text message from this number (414-433-1608) saying there was fraudulent activity on my Southern Commerce Bank account, (which I don't have) and to contact them at the above number.

    Here's the problem thought: I recieve text messages from SOMEONE constantly, saying they are from Southern Commerce Bank. Each time I block the number, they use a new one. 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? It's ALL OVER the internet; what they do is well known by all. Why can't Law Enforcement crack down on these people? It seems they can do whatever the hell they want with impunity. Is ANYTHING being done to stop it? ~

    I got "Your Google password has been changed" from a strange #(214) 814-3238 after I changed it.

    I then tried to open/add that account to my tablet. I was not able to type in the email address as it was frozen, jumbled.

    Tried to reverse lookup, came up with a list that went on FOREVER, saying it was from Airport Texas and that's ALL I could find. Immediately went to my new/real account and changed THAT password and set up 2 step verification.

    I had to open a new one because this one had been hacked. Was trying to retrieve the photos on this old one. Does that mean that the number is linked up to a password change notification/link to change? Are they in my tablet again now??? Any input? ~

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.

    I have Verizon.
    Got a Vchat alert RE: Visa Fraud alert from Achieve Card with an 804 area code.
    It's a scam. Don't bother. ~


  • Anonymous: Dec 22, 2013 from: Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

    I have Verizon.
    Got a Vtext today: Visa blocked due to fraud. Achieve Card. Call 804-XXX-XXXX.
    Called Visa - it's a scam - maybe playing off the Target charge card debacle?
    Credit card fraud alerts come via a phone call, not a text. ~

    I have a Verizon prepaid, and I got a message from 40621039@vtext.com it says (WellsFargo-Notification) Call 1-406-205-0069. I do not bank with WellsFargo never have so I called the number using a land line, and it went straight to a full mail box. My boyfriend has Straight talk prepay phone and he got the same message at the same time. How do they get my number and how the frick do I block them? ~

    My call about Achieve card was from 20959623@vtext.com. It asked me to call 566-2358. Of course I didn't open it. If people ignored all of these texts the scammers would stop. There will always be gullible or curious people so that will never happen. ~

    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 ~

    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 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. ~


  • info: Nov 3, 2013

    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. ~


  • info: Nov 3, 2013

    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? ~
