Text Message Phishing Scams
Beware of a new phishing scams using text messages, also known as SMS messages, to trick you into divulging your account or debit card information.
Never believe a text message with an urgent tone about a concern with your bank or debit card account. People who have gotten these were asked to call a given phone number to verify their account details. When called, the phone number went to a voice message suggesting it was from their bank asking the caller to enter their debit card number, PIN, and in some cases, the expiration date. Veritex will NEVER request confidential account details like these in text message alerts.
