Texting scam disguises itself as delivery notification from Amazon, FedEx, according to reports
There’s a new scam to watch out for.
This time, it’s a texting scam that disguises itself as a delivery notification from companies like Amazon and FedEx, according to How to Geek.
Within the text, there will be a link that takes you to a fake Amazon page that offers you to take a “free survey.”
Then, the survey will ask for your credit card information to pay for shipping, and it will automatically sign you up to received a product each month with a charge of $98.95.
Of course, one of the easy ways to detect this scam is to note what is said in the address bar of the web page.
