Phishing Scam Alert

WSFA 12 News on top of a consumer scam alert.

The Attorney General's Office issued a warning to people in the Montgomery Area.

Here's how the scam works: the victims get a call, text message or email saying their account was closed because of suspicious activity and need to call about it.

When they call, they're asked for their account number.

If you receive these messages, you should report it to the Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-392-5658.
