NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Norfolk Fire Rescue is warning a texting scam that's targeting people's credit card information.

The text comes through saying that you have a message from Norfolk Fire Department, and asks you to contact a phone number immediately.

"Please be aware that Norfolk Fire Rescue would never contact someone by text and ask for personal or financial information," warns Battalion Chief Harry Worley.

Also important to be aware that Norfolk Fire Rescue does not use the Norfolk Fire Department name for business purposes.
