End User mobile connectivity scams security

sms #phishing

Had a couple of sms phishing attempts in the last couple of days:

“FREEMSG: Our records indicate you may be entitled to 3750 pounds for the Accident you had. To claim for free reply with YES to this msg.  To opt out text STOP.”

The each appear to come from a different mobile number.  Needless to say anyone getting one of these should just delete them.  I wouldn’t reply STOP. I don’t think there is anything we can do other than deleting them.  Unless you start gettign a lot of these message s it is probably too small a problem for the networks to take onboard. 

I wouldn’t be tempted to reply STOP.
