Txt Message Scam

Carl from Fairview Downs

Hi Neighbourlys

For the last 3 days I have been sent several txt messages saying I have a parcel to pickup. I know I don't have anything outstanding to be delivered. So alarm bells rang suggesting a scam and it is. If you get a similar txt It asks you to follow a link. DON'T. If you have an android device It will upload malware onto it and access any info on your phone.

Delete the message from your phone/device.

It's worth asking Grandparents, Parents and Friends who are not tech savvy if they have had a suspicious txt and help them out.

Below is a link to the NZHerald about the scam.


Cheers, and don't be scammed.
