PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. - New York State Police is warning the public about a text messaging scam.

Police say they have received numerous reports of citizens receiving a text message from either Adirondack Regional Bank or Adirondack Federal Bank advising that there was a problem with their account. 

The text message instructed the individual to call a number and were advised to enter their social security and credit/debit card number.

Police say the text message has also gone to non-customers. 

If you are the recipient of one of these text messages, please contact the New York State Police in Plattsburgh at (518) 563-3761.
