Cybercriminals are using SMS messages to pose as UK delivery services, such as ‘Royal Mail’ to collect personal details.
The SMS messages appear unsuspecting, giving victims an update about the parcel that they have ordered. However, the deceitful link redirects users to download a malicious app onto their smartphones. This App contains spyware which, if installed, can steal your banking details, passwords, and other sensitive information contained on your Smartphone and send it to Cyberattackers. The software will also use your device to send the messages to your contacts, further spreading the malware.
If you receive messages like these:
We recommend, for total security, not clicking links from text messages or emails and going to the official website of the company to track your order.
If you need any support with protecting yourself from scams, find out how Cyber Wise can help or get in touch at email@example.com or call 0161 476 8276.
