FAQ: I’ve received an SMS/MMS from you, but I think it’s a cyber scam.
Please be aware that we would never send an SMS or email to you asking for personal information.
SMS or MMS scams are a popular way for criminals try to get you to click on a link that could compromise your mobile phone, trick you into making an expensive phone call, or send a message which could cost you a significant amount of money to send.
Please look out for the following when unsure if an SMS is genuine:
- Unexpected SMS messaging asking you to give personal details - we will never ask for personal details over SMS.
- Unexpected SMS messaging advising that you have won a competition or prize, regardless if you have entered or not - we will always call you to inform you that you have won a competition and to verify your entry.
