If you have a cell phone you're likely to get a call.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my questions on Facebook.

It seems Verizon wireless customers aren't the only ones getting fraudulent messages and calls.

I heard from Sprint, AT&T, Virgin Mobile, and Cricket users, too.

Wells Fargo tells me a lot of folks are getting text messages and automated calls to their wireless phones.

The message claims to be from Wells Fargo. It says your debit card is "limited". Some are asked to pass on the last four digits of their social security number.

Others are asked to input their 16-digit credit card number to reactiviate it.

Don't do it.

Wells Fargo tells me these calls are all random and a lot of them are coming in late at night after banks are closed to scare you.

Banks want you to know they'll never ask for your personal or account information. If you're a customer they already have it.

If you have any questions, call the number on the back of your card. Don't call the number sent to you in a text or automated message.

If you think the crooks won't target you .. think again.
I got a call on my cell just a few days ago.
