The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public about a possible scam.

Deputies say the 911 Dispatch Center has been receiving phone calls regarding text messages that have been sent to cell phone owners. The text messages say: “Your bank account has been compromised. Please contact First National Bank of Walker at 218-252-8142 or 218-296-7222.”

The Sheriff's Office says this is a scam, and advises people not to call or text back. Deputies say to contact your bank directly instead.
