Caller: JB stores
Text saying I’ve won a competition after my purchase from our JB stores. Click on the link (which I obviously didn’t do)
Sms message said:
Parcel: #and a fictitious parcel number# to #my mobile phone number# stopped at our distribution center. Attention is needed : #then a link I haven't copied here#.
This one could trap people who aren't paying attention so beware.
Text msg saying "Dear (my name),thanks for never missing a payment. Please accept a nice Giveaway now!" plus a link to click on which I didn't! I'll block the number but they'll use another. Another one about "your item has been held at our distribution centre. Please follow instructions" and a link.
Caller: Scam SMS

Scary when scammers know your first name to use in their SMS scams.
Blocked and deleted, but they will use other numbers to send from again. 😡
