SAN ANTONIO – It’s a problem anyone with a cellphone can relate to -- scam texts that won’t stop. If you noticed them increase lately, you’re not wrong.
Brian Munsterteiger with Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union says his team has tracked a 230% increase in phishing texts in the last two months.
“The biggest thing that I always like to tell people is RBFCU, or any other trusted source, will not reach out to you to get your personal information. We have all of that,” Munsterteiger said.
He urges people not to click the links or share passwords or credentials.
Before you delete a phishing message, report it to your bank or credit union’s fraud department, and forward it to the Federal Trade Commission by copying the message and sending the spam text to 7726 to help block similar messages in the future.
