Fraudsters are still attacking us. We recently wrote about the arrest of members of a group that cheated people on BLIK. Now hackers are on the net, trying to break into our devices using “InPost SMS”.
SMS from InPost
What exactly are you talking about? Hackers send SMSes with information about the need to download the application in order to receive a pickup code for the parcel locker. The problem is that the link sent does not lead us to the page with the application, but only installs a virus that can cause, among others loss of control over a bank account.
– You will receive the pickup code after downloading our new application https://APPINP0ST.COM – that’s the exact SMS. Significantly, fraudsters send these fake SMS messages with a link to people who are actually waiting for the parcel to be picked up at the Parcel Locker. The message they sign is “Important”. The fraud will be detected by perceptive people, because in the InPost name instead of the letter “O”, the fraudsters entered “0”. However, if you don’t see it, it’s really hard to notice the difference.
After installing the virus, fraudsters will be able to intercept SMS from the bank, take control of the bank account and eventually rob our account of savings.
InPost informs that receiving the pickup code is not dependent on having the application. Everyone who has used parcel machines knows that the code is sent directly to the e-mail address provided to the company, in an SMS and is also available in InPost Mobile.
– Be careful and don’t get caught by false messages. Download the application only from trusted sources, i.e. from Google Play and App Store. More about security at: https://inpost.pl/yszneenstwo – warns the company in its communication published on Facebook.
Once again, fraudsters targeted InPost customers. “You will receive the pickup code after downloading our new application” – yes …
Recently, we also wrote about “a fraud against BLIK.” Criminals hacked the accounts of real people on Facebook (this was done through phishing websites that phishing login details). In the next step, they asked the victims’ friends to send BLIK codes and other data. In this way money was extorted.
