(WFSB) – Local police departments are warning residents of a scam going around for a mobile payment app.
The app, Venmo, is used as a digital wallet.
East Windsor Police put out a warning that there is a scam that sends users a text message about the Venmo account, saying that it will be charged.
The text will ask if you want to cancel the withdrawal, you will need to log onto your app and decline it.
The message will then allow you to log on with any phone number and password. It will then ask you to verify who you are by entering the bank card number and other personal and financial information.
The scam will use the same colors and fonts at the Venmo app.
Police say to not use the pages provided by the text or enter your account information.
Anyone who may have fallen prey to the scam is advised to contact their bank or credit card lender.
