Each month the Communications Team share a digital tip: What happens if you open a text from a scammer?

Clicking on a link in a spam text message could install malware that can collect information from your phone Once the spammer has your information, it can be sold to marketers or, worse, identity thieves. It can also lead to unwanted charges on your cell phone bill. So what's best to do when you received a spam text

  1. Don’t reply
  2. Don't release any personal information
  3. Don't click on any links (the bits in blue/underlined)

You can report internet scams and phishing
