Smishing Explained (SMS Phishing)

This scam involves a fraudster sending text messages (also known as an SMS) at random to mobile phones. The text messages claim to come from a reputable organisation such as your bank or mobile phone company.
The message will try to trick you into clicking on a link to a bogus website or calling a phone number, usually by claiming you need to “verify” or “update” your details or “reactivate” an account. The criminal will then attempt to get you to disclose personal or financial information, which they will use for their own fraudulent purposes.
Often the messages will attempt to alarm you, claiming that you need to act urgently or face serious consequences.

We will soon explain how to create a powerful sms phisher (smisher).
