    I got two text messages within twenty minutes:

  • June 22, 2020 at 9:30 AM by an anonymous user from: Greenville, South Carolina, United States

    I got two texts from scammers pretending to be Bank of America. The first one reads:

    1(410)200-501

    FRM: BnkofAmeerica.

    Follow bofa5e5z.com

    SUBJ: ACCOUNT BLOCKED

    MSG:9528

    The second one came two minutes later.

    The text was identical to the first except

    the phone number was listed as

    1(410)200-500 *Note the phone number is one character shorter than a standard number. And the message reference was different,

    MSG:4813

    The only accounts I have with BofA are loans and since they are always paid on time I doubt very seriously they would block the account. And, I'm quite certain they would spell "America" correctly.
