    Received text from 8774542240 saying that my Visa card is temporarily locked. Please call the number listed. I ignored it because I have several security systems that would detect it.

    My fiance got the text. It had a link to click on. And it gave that number to call. I was stupid and called it before googling the number. After a few rings the call was picked up, nothing was said. Then they hung up. Now I'm a little worried they might aomehow get my info.

    Received it 5 minutes ago telling me my credit card was locked and to hit a number to unlock. No way.

    Went right to Google, searched the number and took me right here, confirming it was truly Phishing! Thank you!

    I just got a text from this number saying my VISA card is temporarily locked. But I don't have a VISA card.

  • July 18, 2022 at 3:13 PM by an anonymous user from: Burlington County, Southampton Township, New Jersey, United States

    Just got the same text. No way I'm calling back! Total scam!

    I got one today (7-18-2022) at 2:27PM Eastern Time.

    When I called the number I knew it was scam. Computer generated voice plus I don't have a card with the number they texted me.

    Just got text from 877.454.2240. Did not respond.

  • July 18, 2022 at 12:22 PM by an anonymous user from: Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States

    I dialed the number and they asked me to press 1 if I wanted to unlock my card. I just hung up and blocked the number. When my call was answered it did not say I had reached any bank. As others have said it always good to call your bank, their number is on your credit/debit card just to be sure!

    877-454-2250 sent an alert today titled “bank card alert” and said that my Visa card had been locked and to notify them immediately. The message had what appeared to be the last 4 digits of a Visa card (966#). This didn’t match any of my cards so I used google to look up the senders phone number and found multiple warnings of scammers using that number.

  • July 18, 2022 at 10:19 AM by an anonymous user from: Hicksville, New York, United States

    I received a text telling me to call this # because my visa had been suspended and it gave me part of "my" card #. I do not have a card with that # and I came here to verify this was most likely a scam. I reported and blocked the #.

  • July 18, 2022 at 9:52 AM by an anonymous user from: Collier County, Jerome, Florida, United States

    I just received a text saying exactly the same message. It look like a scam to me. That’s why I looked up this number.

      Yup...my husband just today received the same text but with different numbers

    • July 18, 2022 at 10:20 AM by an anonymous user from: Hicksville, New York, United States

      This is what I got too but different card numbers.

    Check your mobile banking app to verify. No alert appeared for me.
