Beware of Fraudulent Bank of America (BofA) Text Messages Sent By Scammers

Bank of America customers, if you have received SMS text messages, especially from vtext.com claiming that it is urgent that you call the telephone numbers in the messages, please do not follow the instructions in the messages, just delete them. The messages are fakes and are being sent by scammers to random telephone numbers, which the scammers hope will reach some Bank of America customers, in order to trick them into calling the telephone numbers in the messages. Calling the bogus telephone numbers will only connect the potential victims to an automated telephone system set up by the scammers, which will ask them to enter their credit card numbers, names, date of birth and even their security codes.

Once the victims have entered their information, it will be sent to the scammers behind the text messages, who will use it to rip the victims off.
