I got a text message claiming to be from TD Bank, a bank I haven’t ever stepped foot into, claiming someone used my card to try buying 927 dollars of something from an online store. The phone number in the text is listed as 1800REDACTED. The number tried calling me three times in one minute half an hour later. I’m assuming it’s a scam since I don’t have a TD bank account or any bank accounts or cards for that matter. Also the phone number calling me is pretty sus. The phone number it gave is probably fake since half the online reviews are saying it’s a scam and the other half say it’s a real TD bank number. The text message came from the short code number 869-REDACTED. Looking up the phone number it looks like it’s been used in other similar scams like one that says “TD Bank fraud dept received your msg. It is important we talk to you. Please call 800REDACTED. ASAP”. The message I got follows this format “FreeMsg: TD Bank Fraud Dept. 1800REDACTED Did you attempt 927.41 at (the name of the online store) with card x(last 4 digits of a card number)? Reply YES or NO. Case (hyperlinked case number I’m not brave enough to tap) To opt out reply STOP” TD Bank has that number listed nowhere on their website. All of their numbers are 888 numbers not 800 and the fraud department’s number isn’t the one from the text message. Is there anyway to definitively prove it’s a scam even though I think it obviously is?
Edit I removed phone numbers.
