Fraudulent SMS

A CASE STORY

"I know the term phishing, I've read about all the cases. And I still got caught! I got a message telling me that there was something wrong with my shipment and to click on the link and pay. Well, I clicked and paid - but the link was obviously nonsense! And here I thought I had the internets down pat ... don't be fooled like me!"

Fraudulent SMS

The company Zásilkovna s.r.o. always informs its customers within the official mobile number, where Zásilkovna is automatically displayed in the sender field.

We recommend not to respond to unknown and suspicious SMS and to delete them straight away.

5 things
to watch out for
in the online waters

Suspicious SMS payment confirmation

Did you receive a text message to confirm a payment you didn't enter? That clearly smells like fraud! Even more so when the message contains incompatible and strange characters, like question marks instead of the letters you selected.

Fragile Czech

Sure, SMS messages are accent-free, but a clunky word or an automatic translation will tell you that something is wrong... Don't click on links from such messages and check the sender.

Send an SMS and win a million!

"Write a message in the form SOUTEZ VAS EMAIL VAS TELEFON and send it to the number..." Beware of these text messages and contests that ask you to send personal, let alone payment information.

Beware of transactional codes

Fraudsters send an SMS with a fake transaction code and a request to forward the message. One big warning! Never forward SMS with these codes to anyone.

Use your common sense

Navigating the online waters seems complicated, but the lifeline is verification. Use search engines, look for information, do your research - and always before opening strange messages. Because then it may be too late...

SHARE AND SPREAD

Send to grandma, grandpa, uncle or share on social networks this "pond"

Send it by email or on instagram. Share important information on your networks, make a printscreen and send it on. Help us educate people and spread awareness!
