Scammer sends text to Richmond man claiming to be Bank of America

A Richmond resident almost fell victim to a scam targeting his credit card information and social security when someone contacted him posing as Bank of America. While he was able to avoid trouble, others lose their money or identity in scams every year. Everette Spindle of Richmond woke up to a strange text message last week from someone who claimed to be from Bank of America. The message seemed odd to him because he left Bank of America as a client in 2015. His uncertainty made him question the matter, but after being told to contact them by phone to resolve the issue he called from a different number. After calling he was asked to give up his personal information, including his name, phone number and credit card information. When he was asked to give up his social security number, he stopped.
