    A gang of criminals based on the West Coast is robbing banks in the East, using text messages and voice recordings to target small, local banks and credit unions.

    Dublin-based mobile security company AdaptiveMobile has been investigating the gang, which has been in operation for the past five years.

    The gang starts out by getting a phone number in their target bank's area code to send the text message from.

    In the message, they ask account holders to click on a URL or call a phone number. The phone number takes them to a voice recording that asks them for all their account details -- up to and including ATM PINs.
