Fake/Phishing SMS or Text Messages Fake Phishing SMS or Text Messages

U.S. Bank customers are asked to look out for phishing SMS or text messages that appear as urgent alert notifications, asking them to click on a link. The fake text messages, sent by cybercriminals, have links that go to a phishing USBank website that steals the credentials, or usernames and passwords of USBank customers. Once the cyber-criminals who sent the fake messages have gotten the stolen information, they will use it to gain access to their potential victims' USBank accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.

The Phishing U. S. Bank Text Message


([] Alert - Urgent Notification. Follow: Today.)

USBank customers should never click on a link in a text or email message to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly to and sign in from there. And, if there is some wrong with their accounts or they are to view some important message, it will be shown to them right after they have signed in.

Now, USBank customers who have already been tricked by the fake text messages, are asked to change their USBank password, check their accounts for any discrepancy, and contact USBank immediately.

    I don't get texts or emails from this bank but, I'm getting a lot of s*x sites saying that I have joined and it also shows that I have an account set up and everything and it's not me.

    I had an amazing boyfriend but, now he believes I'm cheating on him. My Google history shows ALL the time that I'm on s*x sites and at hotels. This all has ruined my personal life. I'm so sick and tired of it all. I want it all to stop. NOW!

      Yeah that’s happened to me too and it happened to be a group of people that I guess came across one of my social media accounts and had some problem with me personally, and I had everything you described and more. I even received an email from someone that said they managed to get malware on my phone by my carelessness.

      I admit and they have access to everything that is on my phone and I have to pay them 5000 in bitcoins or they are going to ruin my online reputation which they have been doing now whether the email itself is real or not they know that I am having problems with everything that has to do with my phone and what is weird was that email was sent through a friend online I was having a conversation with
