 Hi ladies just wanna let you all know about this current scam going around. 2 days ago my kids started getting these weird texts saying " Your NetSpend card has been deactivated please call this #" I told them just ignore it. Well Last night at 7 p.m. I got this same text message but with a different #. I called to let them know to stop texting me cause i don't have a NetSpend account. Well the # only says " Thank you for calling NetSpend please enter you 16 digit card #". I didn't enter anything.... Then it said your entry is not correct. I stayed on the line and they hung up on me! So i did a lil research and found out that this company does exists and is base in Austin, TX (where i live). So i contacted them and told them. They aren't the ones sending texts.  The # my kids got was an Austin, TX area code, but the # i got was 210-957-8808 and the message is from: notice3991@netspend.org Also some other people have been getting this same message and have posted about this scam on FB. Please don't give any info cuz they will wipe out all you funds!!! Just wanted to share this you guys Have a great day.

 Thanks for the heads up.  I ignore any calls or texts from numbers I don't recognize.
