Plattsburgh Police warn of scams

Posted: Updated:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -

Plattsburgh police are warning cellphone users about a texting scam.

Authorities say scammers claim to be from a bank and ask you to call for an important notification or to verify your account information. But police say the text is just a con to get you to share your personal info.

In another scheme, police say the crooks claim to be from Target, Wal-Mart or Best Buy, calling or emailing to ensure your sensitive info has not been compromised. Do not give them your name, address or Social Security number.
