Longview police are warning of a scam that is hitting the area, mostly targeting those with Longview based cell phone numbers.

A text message is being sent around saying there is a problem with a local banks credit cards and asking for information verification through a link sent in a text. The message then asks the cell phone owner for personal account information.

The message reads:

4461@vtext.com
(CommunityBankLongview) Call(972-865-1395)

If you receive this message, delete the text and do not provide your information to the scam artists.
