Received an unsolicited text message..... odd thing is I've recently ordered items online through 'trusted' sites..... rarely order online. I have received my deliveries anyway PLUS the delivery alerts ALWAYS come by email as well as sms..... no such email....
Tempting to click on link BUT heeding experience/wise advice of others and WON'T.
Have instead BLOCKED the alleged mobile number, taken screenshot of message and then deleted original sms to avoid any accidental clicking on the offending link.
SMS as follows:
Hello-Your order has ben held at our forwarding depot. Please follow instructions here: http://vo0.me/NUaid
Anonymous text telling me I've won a prize and to follow the links Caller: TXT FedEx
Hello - Your Order has been held at our forwarding depot.
Please follow instructions here:
This is the TXT message sent to me and here is its link.
Once you go to the link ... it send you to another page.
And this appears to be a fake link making it self out to be TNT FedEx
The link looks dodgy as it originates from a cloud based server.
You have a pending delivery.
Use your unique tracking code to track and receive your item.
Your tracking code
I have entered the code into the real FedEx.com web site and it did not bring up any matches. No results found.
I am not going any further. This all looks very dodgy.
Infomessage - something about an order being at the depot with a link...did not try it. Claims to have a package for that is being held at their warehouse $3 duty to be paid Caller: Dont know
Texted saying they have mh order ready to pick up - propting me to click on the link they sent and “follow instructions”
I am not waiting on any order and they dont understand why they would want me to follow any instructions for it.
They also did not identify themselves or address me by my name and started the text with “Hello”
Scam text message about an order being held and to click on a link, that I presume will allow a virus to access my phone msginfo
