Smishing Example: 7 Reasons This Message Is Suspicious
Smishing is on the rise, but every time we post a smishing example on this blog we strive to do our part in helping to share the "pattern recognition" tips that make unsafe messages obvious. Today is another one of those days: we've got a typical smishing example for you, but we'll dissect it in great detail including at least seven warning signs that the message is probably unsafe. None of these seven warning signs are so strong that they would (individually) predict with 100% accuracy that the message is unsafe. However, when considered as a group, it becomes pretty obvious that this particular message is a smishing attempt.
