Beware Cell Phone Phishing Scam

This doesn’t have anything to do with gluten-free, but it is about Portland. There are fraudsters sending text messages to cell numbers in Portland, trying to get credit card numbers out of them. Here’s the sort of text they’re sending:

BANK NOTICE:
Your CARD has been DEACTIVATED. Please contact us at XXX-XXX-XXXX.

When you call the number, an automated message asks for your credit card number, and if you enter it, then some scammers have your credit card number. If you get a message like this, be safe and call your bank using the number on the back of your credit card.

OK. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
