BRYAN, Texas -- Bryan Police Department is warning the public of a text message scam that is a spin to an old scam.

The customers say they received a text message requesting to call a particular phone number. Once the victim calls, they receive an automated message asking for the bank account information.

Several bank customers have told police that scammers are attempting to gain access to bank account information and commit fraud activity.

As a reminder, banks will not initiate contact with you to gain bank account information. They already have that information.
