Did you know? Crooks will often send spoofed text messages that appear legitimate, in an attempt to get you to click on a link, or call a number, and ultimately divulge sensitive information.

What should you do? If you have questions about the legitimacy of any information you receive, simply call the legitimate business and confirm the information previously sent to you. DO NOT call or reply to the suspicious message, or use any contact information from the material in question.

Have a thought, tip or suggestion? Leave it in the comments below. I would love to hear from you!
