Holiday Fraud Alert
Text Message Scam Warning
Legend Bank has received reports of customers, as well as customers from other banks, receiving fraudulent text messages that claim to be sent from First National Bank. The text message notifies the customer that their card has been suspended and instructs the customer to call a 903 area code number. Upon calling the number the customer is requested to verify their Visa card number. THIS TEXT MESSAGE IS AN IDENTITY THEFT SCAM. The sender is attempting to obtain personally identifiable information and bank account access information.
Cell phone users should be wary of unsolicited text messages. Such messages should be deleted and all deleted text messages should be removed.
Do not respond to unsolicited text messages, email messages or telephone calls that ask for any account information or other private information. Legend Bank will never contact you by email, text message or phone call to ask you to update or verify your account information. If you are unsure of any communication regarding your account, please call 800.873.5604 to confirm that it is a valid Legend Bank message.
