Beware of Bank of America Phishing SMS Text and Email Messages

If you are a Bank of America or BoA customers and you have received SMS text or email messages like the ones below, which appear as if they were sent by the Bank of America, asking you to call a particular phone number, visit a website, or respond to them, please do not. This is because the messages are phishing scams being sent by scammers or cybercriminals, to trick their potential victims into disclosing their Bank of America's account credentials, and their personal and financial information.

Please continue below.

Note: also check the comments below for new fraudulent messages posted by other online users.

Once scammers or cybercrimes have gotten their potential victims' Bank of America information, they will use it to steal their money and use their accounts to commit fraud. Therefore, if you have received messages appearing as if they came from the Bank of America, asking you to call a number or respond to them with your personal or financial information, please do not follow the instructions in the messages and report them to the Bank of America.

If you were tricked into following instructions in a fake Bank of America or BofA message, please contact the Bank of America for help. Let them know that you were ticked by cyber criminals into submitting your account information on a phishing website.

And, always call the Bank of America using the following number:

  • 1 (315) 724-4022

    I just received this then called the number. The first thing it asks for is the last 4 digits of your SSN. It seemed fishy so I hung up and googled scams. Don't call! Hope this helps:

    MANY OF THESE CALL NUMBERS SEEM TO ORIGINATE FROM THE SAME SOURCE OR CALL CENTER.
    When you get any kind of unsolicited calls (robo generated or not) and you get a live person from the caller, when they greet you or ask you a question you just respond "What do you lying cork soakers want to scam me out of today?" If they respond or not just keep repeating your opening phrase over and over and over whatever they say or try to respond with.

    Do this until THEY hang up. If we all respond like this to all unsolicited and illegal calls they will soon get the message. I do this with all unsolicited illegal calls whether if is from Microsoft about computer errors, the IRS or someone wanting to sell back braces or "Rachel" from credit card services. I am on the DO NOT CALL list so that makes them fair game, try it!

    "BofA Update ID#417# Your account is currently suspended! Please reconfirm your account: hxxp://www.boaaonuser.tk/bjW9/OMRNID"

    I don't have a bank of America account which made suspicious enough to Google it. I am posting this to make others aware.

    "1 of 2

    (End)"

    I was immediately tipped off this was a scam by 2 things:
    1) The blatant misspelling of Bank of America in the FRM section
    and
    2) I don't even have an account with BoA

    (I X'd out the Ref. number because they used my phone number, which I found suspicious.)

    I didn't tap on the link. I was already suspicious because when BofA sends a text alert, it comes from a 6 digit number, and they never ask you to tap on a link. I checked my account on the BoA app & saw that there were no alerts from BoA. I also checked my sign-in history, in the settings section, and saw that there were no failed log-in attempts. I'm so happy I researched the number and found this site. I feel bad for those who didn't and became victims of these scams. Thank you all for sharing.

When I hit on the link it took me to a webpage appearing like the bank of america login page but the link on top was so unfamiliar aka suspicious (a name followed by co.uk)

    My question is, if I did follow the link (as I did) but did NOT sign in, will I have any kind of fraud committed to my account?

      No. Once you attempt to sign in that is when your credentials are stolen. Once the cybercriminals have your stolen credentials, they will attempt to gain access to your account and use it fraudulently.

    "Bank of America: 177928 is your authorization code which expires in 10 minutes. If you didn't request the code, call 1.800.933.6262 for assistance." this was a text from a 739-81 number. I don't even have boa.
