There is a text message scam circulating revolving several local financial institutions, and customers are encouraged not to fall for it.
Happy State Bank and Amarillo Nation Bank customers have reported getting text messages saying their card has been deactivated. In the message, the customer is asked to call a 806-576-###. Once the number is called, a recorded voice will ask for the person to enter their full 16-digit card number and PIN.
Those who did fall victim to the scam are asked to call their bank immediately, as well as the police.
