A text message scam appears to be targeting Topekans.

Several people contacted 13 News about messages they received Wednesday that claimed to be from Kaw Valley Bank.

The message says your debit card is being deactivated unless you call a certain number which then prompts you to enter your card number.

Topeka Police say they received at least a couple calls about the messages and are investigating. They remind people to never give personal information unless they are certain who is calling or writing.

They also say, as a general rule, a financial institution will not contact people by text message about their accounts.
