501-229-5989 - Scam Calls and Texts Asking Me to Call Same Telephone Number

I have been receiving a lot of scam telephone calls and text messages asking me to call 501-229-5989. The calls and text messages claim there have been suspicious withdrawals from my card, but I called my bank who said they didn't send the messages or made the calls. When you call the same number, an Automated Voice Response system asks you to enter your credit card information. This is how scammers phish or steal their potential victims' credit card information.

    Got a text today with the exact same wording just different number to call. I called it with blocked caller ID from a different phone. It went straight to automated message... never identified themselves as a particular credit card company...said something like "...this is the "..." center, if you like to reactivate your card please type in your 16 digit card number." Of course, I didn't... so they were trying to phish for information such as a credit card number... I just hung up.
