Smishing (SMS Phishing) Scam – Video 14 – Most Popular Internet Scams

Here’s a another one for ya, Smishing. It’s basically means SMS Phishing for short. The way it works is, you’ll receive random text messages on your mobile device in an attempt to lure you into unknowingly agreeing to accept large monthly charges to your credit card or downloading a virus, or malware onto your smart phone or other mobile devices. Smishing texts often use “trending” news and entertainment topics, or use aggressive threats of fake-billings to lure you to a fraudulent website. That’s where you’ll get asked to enter sensitive information such as credit card details or passwords. When you get these texts, just delete them and don’t click the link.
