A recent SMS text message
phishing (SMiShing) campaign is targeting Verizon Wireless customers
and customers of other providers that piggyback off the Verizon network,
such as Spectrum . These messages are
spoofed to appear as though the message was sent from the recipient’s own
phone number. The messages vary but typically thank the recipient for
paying their bill and offer a gift. The messages include a link to accept
the gift. These links may lead to malicious websites intending to steal
account credentials or personal information, or install malware. A similar campaign targeted AT&T customers in August
