Beware of Texting Scam

Posted: Updated:

Rutherford County authorities are asking citizens to beware of a texting scam. They say someone is sending texts from this number 828-284@VTEXT.

The text says there is a problem with your banking account. It requests that you reply to the text of call (813) 508-7915. That number is out of Tampa, Florida.

If you reply or call, the scammer will try to get you to verify your account number so they can "fix" the problem.

They say if you get a text message like this you should not reply. If you've already been a victim of a scam, contact your local law enforcement agency.
