text scam

Mobile phone with scam and fraud message speech bubble
AARP Connecticut is joining with the Departments of Banking, Consumer Protection, and Aging, as well as the Better Business Bureau and others to warn Connecticut residents about a new text scam targeting customers of Webster Bank, N.A. According to State Banking Commissioner Jorge Perez, the fraudulent text appears to be a genuine notice from Webster Bank indicating that they are currently performing maintenance of their system and asking the recipient to click on a link to renew personal details.  While this particular text targets Webster customers, other text scams have targeted many other banks and businesses.
