Officials say credit-card scammers have targeted customers of another western Nebraska financial institution.
Platte Valley Bank marketing director Mindy Burbach told the Scottsbluff Star-Herald that some customers have been getting text messages telling them that their credit cards have been deactivated.
They are being told to call an 877 number and provide financial information so the cards will be reactivated.

The bank's main office is in Scottsbluff.
Some customers of Western Heritage Credit Union, which has offices in Alliance, Gering and Scottsbluff, have reported getting similar messages.
