The Interactive Voice Response System then tried to get my full credit card number and my full social security number, as there seemed to be a problem looking up my account.

    1-888-795-6262 is a fake Bank of America number, the voice prompt sounds like Bank of America, the lady who answered the phone could not wait to get my account number, my full name, my birthday, my mother's maid name. I did not give anything to her. I told her she should stop doing bad thing, she definitely is well trained, she said I understand your concern, please call the phone number on the back of your card and hang off.

    I just received the same text message from that number. I did not answer. Could Bank of America do something about it?

    I received the same text...I used the Bank of America number on the back of "my card" and called into the bank of America fraud department. I explained the text message without giving any information as to my name, number...etc. Bank of America Fraud department called the number and confirmed it was a Bank of America telephone Number auto dialer.

    Assured me the number was ligit. I called the number and it was Bank of America. Yes, they verified my personal information so that I could correct an error on my account. If in doubt call the back of your card.

    They knew my date of birth. The last four digits of my credit card, address, cell phone number and my e-mail address. Don't talk to them!!! Try to change your numbers every now and that seems to work best.
