People are being warned about a scam. The Employment Development Department says that some customers have received a text message that is seemingly from either the E.D.D., or the bank of America......in which there’s an effort to trick people to give up personal information. Anyone who is unsure of whether a text message is legitimate can check their ui online account, or mailed notices, to verify the information. E.D.D. gave some tips on how to determine if a text message is a scam, including:
- Any text messages asking to reactivate cards are scams.
- Avoid clicking unexpected links claiming to be from the edd or Bank Of America.
Customers can call Bank Of America directly using the number on the back of their debit card to verify a text message.
