It has been a few months since I received a phishing text. On one hand I was glad, on the other I was sad since I need keep this blog up to date with fresh content. Coincidentally, the same day I was thinking about this I finally received a text.
This one is similar to the USPS one, asking to click a link to view your tracking information, however the senders of this one need to know their audience. Instead of the word "package" they used "parcel". Right when I read that word I knew immediately this was spam. Then reading further into the text it is so very vague and the link makes no sense. Additionally, why would I click a link to "check" my shipping address? It is not even close to realistic text.
"Shipment Tracking: Hi, your parcel with tracking code [ID] is waiting for you to check the shipping address: [LINK]"
