(WZZM) -- 13 is On Your Side With an alert of a scam sent by text message.

A WZZM viewer contacted our Information Center saying he received 13 messages Tuesday by someone posing as Fifth Third Bank. The messages say "account suspended" and includes a link to update your information.

But clicking on the link and entering sensitive information gives the scammer access to your bank account.

Fifth Third Bank has dealt with similar scams before, most recently in 2011. Huntington Bank customers were also targeted in that scam. Experts say banks will never ask for personal information in a text message or email.

If you receive a message like that, call your bank and report it.
