Scammers are now sending realistic-looking text messages. These messages look like legit package delivery messages that contain a link for you to click. If you receive a text message such as the one seen in this article, don’t click the link provided (even if you are expecting a package from the shipping company mentioned in the text message). Instead, you should go to the shipping company’s site to check the status of your package or to handle whatever business is necessary for your package. To be safe, regardless of the text message or email received, don’t ever click a link provided “for your convenience” (unless you are absolutely sure it will take you to the destination you are expecting). Yes, it’s convenient, but if it the link ends up pointing you to a scammer’s site, it won’t be worth all the time you will spend trying to reclaim your identity.
