Please call your local Alliance Bank office if you have provided this information or if you have any questions.
No rest for the wicked, or at least that’s the way it seems to be with scams. Yet another series of phishing text messages have been sent out to unsuspecting cell phone users. The fraudulent text messages claimed to be sent by Alliance Bank were actually attempts by criminals to persuade recipients to divulge card and account information.
Alliance Bank customers and non-customers alike received the messages, but the bank has announced that no information has been compromised. The messages referenced an account number using a common card number prefix in an attempt to gain the rest of the card number from the scam target.
