New Scam Targets Text Messages

There's a scam alert today involving a text message. The scam is designed to trick people into giving out personal information.

Kentucky's Better Business Bureau says its been flooded with phone calls about the text message.

The text claims to be from Commonwealth Credit Union and tells customers their on-line account access is limited for security purposes and they need to call a certain number.

The con artists are trying to get people to call the number and reveal their bank account numbers.

    How many years ago has it been now that you were told to NEVER give personal details out over the phone? The only reason scams like this work is because people are dumb enough to fall for them. DO NOT give out personal information of any kind to anybody over the phone EVER.
