Just got this text on my phone (and I rarely get spam on my phone ) and never order stuff on it .

Obvious scam , Just posting in case it is rife and anyone is tempted to follow the link . As always NEVER do ,just delete and forget .

I got this last week. And one from the tv licensing saying my license was now due with a link to pay. There is definitely a lot more scams on the go at the moment

There are THREE going - Paypal, Netflix and Amazon, all telling you your account has been blocked. I put them into phishing and report.

I rarely get those texts/emails as I don't enter comps so thought it strange though obviously a scam .

Was worried that some members on here (who use Paypal all the time ) might panic and follow the link . I firmly believe we should all look after fellow members as best we can .

It's often worthwhile typing the number into browser and finding many others are confirming it's a scam. Sometimes also leaving a comment to warn others. This is for that number https://who-called.co.uk/Number/07898492454 Your reputation is restored Ann1984 😀

I had the same text earlier this month and ignored it. There have been a couple more scamming texts coming through since and I never had any before. There are more scammers going around since Covid

Always good to keep reminding folk of the danger of these scams and the necessity NOT to click on any links in texts and emails - sadly hundreds still do .

I never click on the links in those emails. I go onto my actual account to check. You can normally tell from the email it is sent from or the grammar used, but if you are in a hurry then you might just click the link and that is how they get people.

I am forever getting PayPal emails telling me I need to do this that or the other. It makes me laugh because I have never had a PayPal account.
