    I received a Citizens Alert telling me $860.64 had been used from my debit account to purchase Crypto . I was to click on to authenticate or decline. Obviouxly I did not do this. I did check my account and it was fine.

    There are variations on this. I received a Citizens Alert text from an Atlanta area code, saying my card (unspecified) had been used @ a Best Buy and giving me a link to click on to verify it. Looks suspicious to me.
