SMISHING SCAMS

Social-engineering scams that aim to manipulate victims to giving over private data.

The smishing scam is a form of email attack where one will send an email to thousands of people pretending to be a business’s executive officer. The email tells the recipients that their account has been blocked for sending very large or abusive messages so the scammers will ask the victims to change their passwords and emails.

This is a spam attack that is largely used by scammers who are trying to lure victims into providing personal information and passwords.
