BALLINGER, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A Ballinger bank issued a scam warning to its customers on Thursday, in relation to a text message alleging it was from the bank.
In a First National Bank of Ballinger Facebook post (FNBB), the bank warned customers that it would never send text messages, emails or calls asking for a response, let alone account information.
FNBB said the bank would only provide information about account activity through email or text message alerts to which its customers consent in advance.
The bank posted this screenshot of an SMS as an example:
“The crooks are attacking hard again. Please be diligent,” the post read.
He continued thus:
The Bank does NOT know your online banking password or debit card PIN. We will NEVER call you to ask you to provide this information or change your password.
The bank encourages everyone to check with the bank if you are unsure if someone is contacting you claiming to be with FNBB.
If in doubt, you can contact a bank representative with First National Bank of Ballinger by calling (325) 365-2525.
