A simple banking text scam hits Mississauga and Brampton
Published October 6, 2022 at 7:56 pm
Yet another TD bank text scam is making the rounds in Mississauga and Brampton in a poor attempt to steal customer information.
The text setting off phones dinging is a simple one. It reads only (SMS) TD Bank type YES to continue. Previous similar scams made the rounds in July and September.
These ones were a little more complicated. The July scam claimed the customer’s card was locked, while the latter suggested TD had updated its security policy.
The messages above are all scams and anyone who receives one should not reply to it. They will string the victim along, asking them to input their banking information. TD calls these sorts of messages “smishing,” a portmanteau of short message service (SMS) and phishing.
