Texting scam targets both customers and non-customers of Webster Bank.
Here’s something you can count on. Banks will never request personal information via text. So if you receive a text purporting to be from your bank asking for personal deets, it’s probably a scam phishing for your financial information. Do not click on any links in the text and delete the message right away.
One such texting scam currently targeting consumers prompts Webster Bank customers to follow a link to “(r)enew personal details.” The text makes the immediately suspicious claim that this is necessary due to ongoing “maintenance of our network.” And while the message is addressed to Webster Bank customers, a TINA.org staffer who has never banked with the Connecticut-based financial institution also received the text on Monday.
