This Scam Is Hitting Cell Phones In Buffalo
Scams always feel like they will hit every one else. But this one is happening to people right here in Buffalo. I got it on my phone too.
It's a phishing scam and authorities are warning people not to click on links like this.
The scam involves a text that reads:
Hello mate, your FEDEX package with tracking code GB-****-**** is waiting for you to set delivery preferences: (the link goes here).
The police agency above is from Massachusetts, but it's hitting people here in Buffalo too.
I got it on my phone.
Remember, if you'd like to track a package, make sure to only use the company's original website. Do not click on a link from a text.
