Texting Scams In Full Force

If you are like me, you probably thought most cyber scams came through email or phone calls. Well, the scammers have been moving to less obvious ways to find their victims. Texting.

The Cyber Bad guys are targeting you through your smartphone more and more. They send texts that trick you into doing something that helps them down the road to scamming you. At the moment, there is a mystery shopping scam going on, starting out with a text invitation, asking you to send an email for more info which then gets you roped into the scam.

Always, when you get a text, remember to “Think Before You Tap”, because more and more, texts are being used for identity theft, bank account take-overs and to pressure you into giving out personal or company confidential information.

Stay alert,
