An administrator with the state’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is warning residents about a type of phishing used to attack their smart phones. Frank Frassetto says it is called Smishing. Although it may sound funny it is serious. The way it works is a scammer sends a text to your phone and if you click on the link they send you it can create problems. He says there may be claims that your bank account has been compromised or that you may have won a gift card to entice you. He says it is all about trying to get you to click on a link or call a number. He says if you click on a link they send you it could download a Trojan horse that will be used to gather information about you. Frassetto says if you are unsure about a text message you receive from someone you don’t know, be very careful about what you decide to do next.
