SPAM TEXTS PHISHING LINKS SMS SCAM

What are the popular SMS/Text Message Scams?

Spam texts (SMS Messages) are sent by computers, bots or apps programmed to spit out hundreds of messages every minute. Scammers expect only a very small percentage of recipients to respond. To increase the chance of successful hits, scammers flood mobile phone networks with millions of messages. Their ultimate aim is financial gain by defrauding unwary recipients who respond assuming that the spam text message they received is legit. Report at Myrmillo.com.

It's important for you to be aware of various types of SMS scams and hence be guarded.

Lottery / Sweepstakes Spam Texts

The fraud business of making money by sending spam SMS commenced with "lottery winner" scam! It's wide spread across the globe. Unwary recipients are amazed to hear they have been "randomly" selected to win a large prize. Scammers use names of well known corporations including Coca Cola, Pepsi, Apple, Microsoft to make the text appear legit. Report at Myrmillo.com.

Bank Account or Credit / Debit Card Suspension

Text message disguised to make it appear as if sent by your bank or your credit card service provider could make the recipient call back or click a phishing link, all designed to steal account credentials. Deceived users panic when they are alerted by unauthorized debits. Report at Myrmillo.com.

Fake Loan Spam Texts

Scammers send bogus messages informing users that their loan application is approved and to get back to them, to receive funds in their bank accounts. The deceived user ends up making an advance fee payment for a loan which never existed. Dubious websites collect loan applications and pass on the phone numbers of unsuspecting customers to criminal networks, for a fee. Report at Myrmillo.com.

Bogus Debt Collection Spam Texts

Fake debt collectors and bogus law firms, send out messages about unpaid debts. Same message is sent to thousands of people, at the same time! Someone who may have defaulted on a loan could get scammed into believing that the message, is in fact, from his creditor and end up paying money which does nothing, to reduce his debt. Report at Myrmillo.com.

IRS, HMRC Tax Demand Scam

In US, Canada and the UK, messages demanding tax payments are a major source of fraud. The messages are largely sent out by scam operators in foreign countries who have local agents to collect "tax" from panicking tax payers. Once a tax payer reverts, the fake tax agents threaten arrest & to freeze bank accounts. Report at Myrmillo.com.

Free Grant Money Spam Texts

Like tax fraud, grant money texts also originate largely from foreign shores. Scammers assures victims that they were selected by the Government due to their clean criminal record and for not being bankrupt!! You would wonder how anyone could fall for such stupid scam! But according to the FTC, every year, citizens collectively lose millions of dollars, in this scam. Report at Myrmillo.com.

Unauthorized Charges

People complain of receiving sudden alerts from their banks or credit card providers about debit of money (usually in small denominations, under $100) which they had not spent or authorized. The unauthorized charges are often result of a preceding phishing scam where the user would have unknowingly shared his banking info with scammers. Report at Myrmillo.com.
