Protecting Yourself from Text Scams

Man looking at his cell phone. Sandy Spring Bank Protecting Yourself from Text Scams.

Fraudsters are now using fake text messages to try and scam consumers. If you receive an unexpected text from Sandy Spring Bank, or a text from a sender pretending to be us, do not reply, call back or click on any links. And don’t forget, texts from Sandy Spring Bank do not contain links. We’ll also never ask you for your account number via text. 

If you receive a phishing text, please block the number on your cell phone. You should also report it to your cell carrier. If you have AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon, simply copy the spam message and text it to SPAM (7726). You will receive a reply from your carrier, asking you for the phone number that sent the spam message. 

You can also call our Client Service Center to verify the authenticity of a message at 800.399.5919.
