Beware Of Text Scam!!

Not HOA related.

Be cautious of a phone scam that’s sweeping the country. You get a text on your cell phone supposedly from Bank of America. It says “Your Bank Card has been locked as a security measure! Follow http://xxxxxxx(my deletion)xxxx and update your profile to unblock your credit card.”

This scam has been used for a number of years, but several friends I called tonight said they had just gotten such a text. So apparently this one is going around again. Banks won’t text you and tell you to update your profile. ┬áSo beware!
