These scammers are getting more crafty. I have recently noticed attempts purporting to be from Venmo. In these texts they bait you with the allure of a potential $100 gift in exchange for a quick 2 minute survey. I worked in research during my prior career and paying a participant $100 in exchange for 2 minutes of their time is overwhelmingly too good to be true. Additionally, the link they push out is clearly a scammy link. In reality, by you tapping that link, you will not receive the $100 nor will your phone or personal information be safe going forward.
Welcome to my phishing documentation blog. You can see a running list of attempts HERE.
