Looking at it - it said - if this is not for you - disregard it. Then it said " we are changing your PIN number.
Then - the NEW four numbers were shown. - no indication of which bank - just fishing.
DONT fall for this
if you do - They will empty your bank account.

I'm now receiving text scams... one from Netflix, another from Koodo (cell phone carrier) and the latest? From our insurance company--but with the same contact as the Koodo scam. Block, then dellete.

Thanks for the alert.
