What the Tech: Smishing scams

What the Tech

Scammers will try anything to get your money, and one of their tactics now is not email or robocalls; it’s through text messages.

Several consumer protection groups have issued warnings about “Smishing” scams that have taken over $54 million from victims just this year.

Jamey Tucker explains how the scam works and what to watch out for.

If you receive a “smishing” text message, you can try forwarding it to 7226.

Report it to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.
