Over 400,000 blackmail emails have been sent to people. Cybercriminals are behind this attack.

Delivery Smishing Scam

Thursday, June 10, 2021

Heads up all Android users! One of the latest scams going around is targeting Android users with a Smishing Scam. Cybercriminals are sending out text messages about how there is a package for you and in order for it to be delivered, you need to pay a small delivery fee. If you click on the link they provide, it directs you to a page asking you to update your Google Chrome app. Once the victim starts to update the app by clicking the install now button, it directs them to a payment page. The cybercriminals ask you on this page to fill out your payment info to pay a small fee so your package can be delivered. Not only does it send you to a payment page but by clicking on the install now button, the victim just downloaded malware. It can be super easy to be tricked by this because the cybercriminals have disguised this malware to look like the actual icon and name of Google Chrome. Once it has been downloaded, the app will then be used by cybercriminals to send thousands of smishing texts to random victims.

The latest phishing email appears to come from Facebook. It starts with “Hi User” and tells the user that there is an issue with their account. In order for them to resolve the issue they need to verify their account and log into their Facebook. They inform the user that the link will expire in 72 hours. When the user clicks on the link it takes them to a look-alike Facebook login page. This page is a fake! Any sensitive information that is entered on this page like the user’s login information will go straight to the hackers. This email also has poor grammer and a couple of misspellings in it.
