The Simsbury Police Department has recently become aware that someone claiming to be from Webster Bank has sent out text messages to individuals warning them that they need to review their account details.
The text message reads: “Dear Webster Bank Customer, we are currently performing maintenance of our network. Renew personal details.” The message also includes a link. This message has been received by non-Webster Bank customers as well.
Webster Bank Officials have acknowledged that the text message is a scam and did not originate from their bank. They are warning customers to not click on the link provided in the text message.
