Schles says package delivery scams are on the rise.
Scammers pose as shipping services and send fake confirmation text messages to get you to click on a link and share personal information.
“If you click on one of these links and it says ‘Sign in with your Google Account,’ ‘Sign in with another account,’ or ‘Use your credit card number’ to authenticate your identity If so, that should be a huge red flag.” Scales said.
