      New way to steal your identity

      Be on the lookout for a new way to get your identity stolen.

      It's called "smishing," and it's the story you picked

      for your Facebook Story of the Day.

      This is how smishing works.

      You get a text message that looks like it's from a bank...most recently, Wells Fargo...in fact some people get them who aren't even Wells Fargo customers.

      The text says your account has been deactivated and leaves a number for you to call.

      When you call back, the person asks for your personal information like your social security number, and your identity is stolen.
