Attorney General Bill Schuette is warning residents about a new text messaging scam.
It's called smishing - that's when a scammer sends you text messages that appear to be from someone trustworthy. The goal for the scammer is to have you respond with personal information or clicking on a link.
The AG's office says smartphone users are three times more likely to fall for them.
You are encouraged to delete such texts and don't respond to suspicious numbers.
