I rec this as a text message on my Sprint/Nextel phone :customer issue, bank of the west services frozen.please call @ 574-522-2368.
I figured it was crap and did NOT call it back as I do not have anything with Bank of the West.

got a text from this number on two former nextel phones numbers :" customer issue, eppi card frozen please call 301-760-7242: this is a scam! the first two text messages referred to the loaded card you get form H&R block for your tax return to be loaded on. We don't have one of those and I called H&R block and they have the info documented.

This was a text message on my cell phone with the text reading "customer issue. eppi card frozen. please call at 973-692-4251."
Sounds like a phishing scam to me. They want you to think it's one of your credit cards or something and call with personal information.
