Like traditional "phishing," "smishing" schemers often pose as finan- cial institutions or sweep- stakes organizations. The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) is urging consumers to be wary of any text mes- sages they receive asking them to follow up immedi- ately in regard to frozen bank or credit card accounts - or cash prizes. Victims of these seams are often asked to call a toll-free number and provide informa- tion, such as their debit card or account number and pass- word, to a fake automated system. Victims have com- plained they have received text messages claiming their bank account is frozen with a toll free number they're sup- posed to call to clear things up. "These hackers are look- ing for you to respond with vital information that can ultimately lead to identity theft," said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau. "In cases of the lottery "smish- ing" seam, hackers want you to wire them money before Investors Choice Financial Services Inc. wvvvz.investors-choice, corn 1-800-472-6495 2648 Broadway Ave. Slaon, MN 244 W.

Text messages such as "Win cash now!" and "Short on cash? Reply here!" are all hallmarks of lottery or sweepstakes seams. Many of these messages come with embedded links that can ulti- mately spread viruses to the phone if the user clicks on them. The Better Business Bureau advises consumers to do the following if they sus- pect they are being targeted by a "smishing" seam. Don't take the bait. Scammers are preying on victims' fears and greed. Don't play along. If the mes- sage you receive has a link in it, never click it. Many schemers use this as way to spread a viral attack on your phone. Report the text immedi- ately. If you believe you have fallen victim to a "smishing" bank seam, call your bank. They'll be able to assist you if your account information has been com- promised. Call your cell-phone pro- vider. Your cell phone pro- vider should be able to block the number, as well as any premium text messages. Do your research. If you believe you have fallen vic- tim to a "smishing" lottery sweepstakes seam, contact the BBB directly to confirm the legitimacy of the text message and to report your experience so that others can be warned. Contact the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC works to help prevent fraudulent activity in the marketplace.
