A scam is going around where cyber criminals are telling mobile customers to open a link to fix a breach of security on their phone, according to Verizone Wireless.
Verizon Wireless says its customers are receiving text messages telling them to open link to correct a security breach. The company says this is more likely a phishing method that allows the sender to retrieve data from customers.
Verizon says similar scams have been occurring using bank names. The company warns customers never open a link on your phone or computer that looks suspicious. Always be sure to verify the authenticity of links.
