Phishing scams by text message




I just had a fishing scam text messaged to my phone.  For goodness sake, if you get a text message telling you to click on a link and log in don’t do it.

This one claimed to be from service@sterilingonline.com.  I don’t have an account with them.

Subject: NOTICE

Your STERLING BANK online service is expired, for renewal please login using ‘www.banksterlingonline.com’ ASAP

The link takes you to www.banksterilingonline.com.  My guess is Bank Sterling does not own that url.
