Warning - new PayPal mobile text scam

Postby RogerS » 20 Apr 2016, 06:17

You get a text message saying that you've just made a payment to so-and-so and that if you wanted to cancel then click the link ....which goes to a phishing site.

Only the idiots got the URL wrong and the DNS lookup fails!

It's still a very good example of social-engineering as it got me to check my actual PayPal account from my computer.
