Yesterday - which may be last week by the time I post this - a Facebook friend asked for my thoughts on an SMS text received from an unknown-to-them organization. You know where this is going, right?
Yes, it was a scam. Nowadays, virtually no legit requests come unsolicited through phone messages from strangers. This one asked my buddy to click a link hosted by a Zimbabwe construction company's website, which has existed just over a year and has 86 subdomains which are all iterations of 'more-fb-agiantstringofnumbers.websitename.zw'. Nothing hinky about that, eh? Naw.
The email sending link appears to be from a legit payment card company, based in the UK, which probably mean its' email was spoofed.
