Keep getting a text from Green Dot.

It says: Green Dot: Prepare for a 3rd stimulus payment. Have your debit card in hand. Lost your card? Request a replacement here: bit.ly/3pnDkKj STOP 2 cancel

Is anyone else getting messages like this from their bank? Is there some sort of news about the stimulus that I've missed?

5. It is from Green Dot.

I checked. That's way I'm asking if there's news that I might have missed about the stimulus.

7. Nope, it's not.

Their even telling people on the app (that I got) to make sure that if they lost their card to get a new one because of the 3rd stimulus is coming.

Something is going on in DC!

9. See post 7

Something is going on in Washington that's not being reported right now because my brother just text me about a similar he got from his bank. Heck, he even got a call telling him to contact his bank if he lost his card. They told him because of the upcoming stimulus coming.

15. About 8 years ago I received an urgent voicemail from my credit union

while I was on vacation. After I got back home a few days later and I verified in person with my credit union and they told me that it was a phishing scam.



I'm always suspicious when it comes to anything that sounds urgent and that needs to be addressed right now. I'm glad that you checked with them to verify.
