Text Msg scam
« on: January 14, 2014, 08:42:59 PM »
I just got a text saying:

 ďCall 310-909-8451 (441858XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX-Achieveaccountfrozen).

I looked it up and found the following news story from Georgia.  Apparently itís in our area now.

Both my sons living in the Smyrna area received it too.

nasty.

Got one of those several weeks ago. Looked valid except the message listed the FIRST five digits of the card rather than the LAST five digits (same as @jstgsn received).  Red Flag!
Just a smelly deplorable dreg of society clinging to God and guns.
