BBB cautions public about text message scams using new technology, says 95.3 MNC

Scammers are becoming increasingly cunning in their use of technology to deceive individuals, as the Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns people to be cautious of text-scams. It is predicted that 2024 will see another record year for phishing scams.

To protect yourself from falling victim to these scams, it’s important to be aware of some common red flags. These include claims of account problems, requests for financial information confirmation, links to click on and messages with numerous typos. The best way to avoid falling prey to these scams is not to click on any links in unexpected emails or texts, and never open messages from unknown senders. Additionally, it’s crucial not to act on any urgent demands for action.

If you’re unsure about a business or have been approached by someone asking for your personal information or money, the BBB website is a great resource for researching businesses and filing complaints. Stay vigilant and cautious when interacting with unfamiliar communications to protect your personal information and financial security from scammers.
