Longview PD: Email scam aimed at East Texans

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

The Longview Police Department is warning East Texans about a fake email targeting bank customers.

Texas Bank and Trust customers and employees are receiving emails with an attached link that could contain "possible malicious software viruses."

Police are advising consumers not to open any emails from your bank that are not from a recognized bank email address.

Some of the emails contain this message:

"Your Bank password was successfully changed on 07/05/2013. If you did not make this change, or if you have any questions, please contact EBC Technical Support by clicking here.Support is available Monday - Friday, 8 AM to 8 PM PST.This is an automated message, please do not reply. Your message will not be received."

Police have received reports from Texas Bank and Trust customers and employees, but warn that this is likely a widespread scam aimed at other bank employees and customers as well.
