TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - If you've received a message on your phone like the one pictures above, be careful not to respond.
Huntington Bank tells 13abc some of its customers and people who don't use the bank have gotten texts like that one. The bank says it's a scam and a third-party is trying to obtain your personal information.
On the bank's website, it says "If you have received a text message claiming to be from Huntington Bank indicating that you should call or text a number regarding your Huntington card, please disregard this text. If in doubt, call the number on the back of your Huntington debit or credit card. We will never contact you for personal information such as account numbers."
Here are some tips from Huntington Bank to help prevent becoming a victim of a phishing scam like this:
-Be aware of text messages that ask you to call a number. If in doubt, call the number on the back of your debit or credit card.
-Don’t click on text messages that ask you to follow a link.
-Look out for messages that ask you to provide or confirm personal information such as account or Social Security numbers.
Remember: Huntington will never reach out to you asking for personal information, such as account numbers or passwords.
