WARNING! A New Text Message #Scam Involving TD Bank Is Making The Rounds

If you are a TD Bank customer, you need to pay attention to this scam that hit my iPhone a few minutes ago.

Now I have redacted my phone number. But I left the scammer’s number in place so that you can compare it if you get this text message. The big hint that this is a scam is that it states that “Your Debit Card starting with ‘4724’ has been flagged and disabled for further use.” Ignoring the bad grammar, every TD debit card starts with ‘4724’ which makes this a pretty generic phishing attempt. The one thing that I have to point out is that while most people will ignore this, there are a few who will fall for this. Because a scam doesn’t have to be successful in volume to be successful.

In the interest of science, I replied Y to see what happened next. But I did not get any response. If I do, I will let you know. But in the interest of shutting these scumbags down, I sent this to TD via Twitter:

To their credit, TD replied pretty quickly:

I sent the email that they requested with the screen shot above. Hopefully TD can shut these scumbags down. In the meantime, keep your head on a swivel so that you don’t fall victim to a scam like this.
