We have been alerted of a recent scam involving debit cards and cell phone texts. If you receive a text on your cell phone with a message indicating "Your Attention is Needed", be cautious. The text then may proceed to say that you need to call a telephone number, which is provided. An automated line will ask you to enter your 16 digit card number. If you do that, then the response will be "the problem is now resolved".
These texts are likely scams. They appear to be coming from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you get such a call on your cell phone, report it to your cell phone service provider.
Use of credit and debit cards as a method of payment in stores and online is growing in popularity. Unfortunately, the risk of fraud is also increasing.
