Text messaging may be seen as an old form of communication nowadays, but SMS phishing is still alive and well.
Below is an example of a phishing text purporting to come from Argos. Whilst the language used isn’t exactly what the retailer would use, if you looked at it quickly you could be tricked into believing it was a legitimate message.
If you click through, you are taken to a website that looks very similar to the Argos website and asked to sign in and then verify your details – giving your name, email address, address, date of birth and card details to the criminals.
Always make sure you never click on the links in messages and emails!
