Watch out for email scam!
We need to encourage you to be more vigilant with your SMS Central account details following a scam or “phishing” email being circulated.
Today we were made aware of an email scam being circulated, claiming to be from SMS Central. This email phishing scam included a request for people to update their SMS Central account details.
The fact is that these emails look authentic and include SMS Central logos, refer to actual SMS Central products or include believable email addresses.
We recommend you remain alert and delete any email that claims to be from SMS Central seeking personal information.
Common email phishing scam giveaways:
- Email requests for private information or to collect prizes/rewards;
- Poor grammar and punctuation;
- Embedded links/ email address ‘click throughs’;
If you received an email highlighting a problem with an account or offer that is unusual or too good to be true, then it is most likely a phishing scam.
Just exercise caution and be diligent. Before you click on the link, place your mouse over it and see that it’s actually going to smscentral.com.au and no other domain. Following that, instead of clicking the link directly, type in www.smscentral.com.au in your internet browser to get to SMS Central’s website.
