The Vineland Police wants to alert all residents to a new text / cellphone scam which are being perpetrated in the Vineland and Cumberland County area. Texts are being received stating: “(Name of banking Institution) 24HRS ALERT: Your VISA # ***** has been temporarily ‘DEACTIVATED’. To restore, please call our 24hrs line (856) ***-****.” When you call the given number, the representative will ask you open ended questions and gain all of your personal identification information and bank account information. They will then remove monies from your account and have your identifiers for future use or fraud. Police are warning people to ignore the scam and to contact police if someone believes they have been defrauded.
