Be Advised: Scam alert from Seneca Falls PD

Within the past day or two, and as recent as this morning, people are receiving scam text messages regarding bank accounts.

From: 855-379-3328 — others have been from 201-633-4111

Text message: “(specific bank name) Notification. Account Locked. Call 844-266-4604″

People receiving these messages often do have an account with that particular bank, but the cell phone number is not associated with that account. This is obviously not the way banks typically communicate with customers.

Please alert family and friends – tell them not to respond if they receive one of these messages.

Thank you.

Chief Peenstra,
Seneca Falls Police Department
