Smishing Bank Account Fraud


Good Morning,

We have had several reports of bank account ‘smishing’ fraud attempts.

Victim has received a text message that appears to be from their own bank, asking to verify a transaction by texting back yes or no.

The victim then receives a telephone call and is told they must move money to a safe account.

This is a scam!

If you do receive a text or call from a person claiming to be from your bank then please do not give any personal information.

Hang up, leave the line for a few minutes or use a different phone and always use the telephone number from the back of your card or bank statement.

Please share this message with family and friends.

Kind regards,

PCSO Beth George
