Tri-Citians are being warned about another text-messaging scam.
The messages are related to getting additional money or reducing interest rates on credit cards, said Mike Blatman, Kennewick police crime prevention specialist.
"Do you need some additional funds? Get funds transferred to your bank account within hours," the message says.
It then tells people to text "Yes" to be contacted or "No" to be removed from the survey.
Police warn people who receive the text message to not respond in any way because the offer can result in fraudulent actions, Blatman said.
The text message is being sent nationwide and has been flagged as a fraud-related phone number, he said.
Dozens of Tri-Citians fell victim to another text-messaging scam last month that solicited bank account numbers. Loses of more than $22,000 were reported to police.
