This reminds me of the text message I got before. It said that my bank account was locked due to suspicious activities and that I needed to call a different phone number to reinstate it. But I was suspicious so I looked it up and found a string of complaints at http://www.callercenter.com. Apparently, the phone number has been used to call people about locked bank accounts and was confirmed to be a scam.
