UPS and FedEx Scams
My wife recently received two strange text messages…
The texts were supposedly from UPS tracking a delivery. They asked her to reply YES to accept their terms and data rates. She immediately researched UPS scams and reported this one.
She discovered that FEDEX is also having fraud issues and that fake bank websites are offering non-existent credit cards. These ‘Phishing’ scams direct you to sites offering low price products or services. If you enter your credit card information, it’s collected by the phishing site.
Now ‘Smishing’ involves fraudulent activity via text messages. Malware is launched when you click on a link to a malicious website. Don’t allow yourself to be scammed by email or text messages!
