Officials warn about flurry of fraudulent texts about your bank account

TULSA - Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt and banks are posting warnings and consumer alerts about text messages many people in Green Country and across the U.S. are receiving.

Pruitt issued a consumer alert , warning people against replying to the texts or providing any information.

Several banks including Tulsa Federal Credit Union posted warnings on their websites.

Dozens of viewers chimed in our our KJRH Facebook page about receiving the texts.

In addition several emails and phone calls came to the 2NEWS Problem Solvers.

If you receive this, or any text, claiming you're overdrawn or there's some other problem with your bank account do not call the number in the text.  Instead call your bank or credit union directly.

If you did receive the text and handed over any of your banking information contact the state Attorney General by visiting OAG.OK.gov or call the AG's Public Protection Unit at (405) 521-2029
