Casper Police Warn of Bank-Text Message Scam
More than 100 people in Casper, Wyoming, on Wednesday alone told the Casper Police Department about receiving text messages to verify or reset bank account information, according to a press release.
"NEVER respond to these texts," the Department says.
Often, these texts ask you to verify a transaction.
Regardless of whether you reply “yes” or “no,” the scammer gives more information and a link to “reset” your login.
If there is a question about authenticity always call your local bank.
