    I received a text:

    Message from BofA: "Suspicious activity on your BofA card. Visit the link and manage your profile."

    The link takes you to a log-in page.

  • January 11, 2018 at 10:55 PM by an anonymous user from: Covina, California, United States

    "358818 is your authorization code which expires in 10 minutes. If you didn't request the code, call 1.800.427.2449 for assistance."

    "129672 is your authorization code which expires in 10 minutes. If you didn't request the code, call 1.800.427.2449 for assistance."

    I got these texts just now and they were preceded by a phone number that I did not answer. He immediately said hello ma’am, you probably received a phone call earlier and I bet you didn’t pick up because you didn’t recognize it. I then told him who are you calling from?. He said that he was with Bank of America and that he needed to ask me some questions about my account.

    He said, however, it already sounds like you are suspicious about this call so I recommend that you call Bank of America, with the number on the back of the card, and then I will answer and help you. I said OK I’m gonna call the number on my card. He said OK mam have a good night. What a scam. Of course, I did not call and I did not log into my account after that interaction. So angry that people are not catching these jerks trying to steal from us.

    Just received the following ALERT from Bank of America but I don't have a BofA account, so I felt this was a scam:

    "Activity Alert
