There has been recent influx in cell phone text scams. These scams are an attempt to steal personal banking information or credit card information. The text message I received was from 917-822-2827 with text text "J P Morgan THPV alert". Please call 817685077".

Why is this a scam?
  • I don't do banking with JP Morgan
  • Banks don't normally text you when there is an issue with your bank
  • The text is from an unverified number
  • The text is vague and does not provide identifying information.
  • An internet lookup/google search for the telephone number terms up no link to JP Morgan
