How scammers are phishing for information through mail fraud texts
SEYMOUR, Tenn. (WVLT) - Some people in East Tennessee are seeing an increase in text scams. After getting a text message to her cell phone from an unsaved number, Leslie Percelly said she knew something about the message was wrong.
”It said ‘post office- your package can not be delivered because the address is wrong, and we need to update our information, please click on this link,’” said Percelly.
Percelly said she wasn’t expecting a package and the hyperlink in the message looked strange. Feeling uneasy about it, she shared it with her husband.
