Yes Virginia… It is getting worse out there!
I know, I know…. Washington D.C. keeps saying that “Everything Is Getting Better!” But, I wish Washington and our so called Leaders would tell that to the “Scumbag Trolls” on the internet that it is okay to stop ripping people off because the gravy train is back! Until then, you should BE AWARE that there are new phishing scams in the works that will not only put you, your family, your friends, co-workers financially at risk… But also cost you more money on your cellular bill in the way of unwanted text messages.
Very soon, if not already, you will begin getting text messages from somebody you don’t know telling you something like…
“Hey its Jennifer, and I just took some new pictures and wanted to know what you think”
Well, if you decide to look, YOU’RE AN IDIOT!
This is another popular one that goes like this….
“OMG, I can’t believe you let them get a picture of you like that. Check it out (with a link)”
Well, I you decide to look, YOU’RE AN EVEN BIGGER IDIOT!
Or how about these two texts…
Message: Call 8 0 0 8 5 1 7 2 6 8 Attention Required California C U
Message: Attention Required 802 851 7268 California CU
The point in a nutshell is that you should not click or call anything remotely like this nor should you trust the message because it came from what you believe to be a loved / trusted one because it could be they clicked or the information was “SPOOFED” to look legitimate.
We have been posting article on this time of “PHISHING” Schemes, Malware, Trojans, Viruses, etc for awhile now to keep you in the know and as safe as you can be, based on your own caution and habits online.
