Cybersecurity Alert – Watch Out For Text Messaging Scams

|

Smishing, or text messaging scams, is a form of phishing in which an attacker uses a compelling text message to trick targeted recipients into clicking a link or replying to a message to reveal personal information. Now that Amazon Prime Day is past, a slew of fake delivery notification texts have been reported trying to scam individuals. For any message you receive, whether it is an email, text, or even a phone call, stay suspicious and verify the authenticity of the sender.
