Amarillo Police are reporting a scam that involves collecting bank accounts and personal information.
Police say the scam is impressively complex.
The scam starts with criminals calling and impersonating law enforcement and claiming the person’s bank account may have been compromised.
The person then tells the person to install an app. to help with the investigation. It then goes on to assign a case number and makes counterfeit documents available to view. Then the app asks for account and personal information.
But it’s not done yet. When you first install the app, it blocks all incoming calls and text messages. That way, you won’t be alerted if your bank attempts to contact you about unusual behavior on your account. .
