Police warn of texting scam – 3FM

Residents are being warned of a texting scam which is circulating on Island.

According to Police, people have been receiving a text which appears to be from their bank alerting them of a password request.

The message then says if the intended victim didn’t receive the request to contact their bank with a phone number link.

However, authorities warn whilst the link may look genuine it will infact send the call through to scammers.

As a result, officers are reminding people to never follow links and to always use telephone numbers from a bank’s official website.
