We are aware of an SMS phishing scam that is using the Linkt brand.
Phishing scams send messages to as many phone numbers as possible in the hope that the recipient will click on the link.
While many of these scam texts come from unknown mobile numbers, we’re aware that some of texts use a spoofing technique that makes the message appear as if the sender is Linkt.
This is a common type of scam, and other services that have been targeted recently include postal/courier services, energy providers and banks.
Linkt customers can be assured that there has been no breach, access, exposure, or theft of any of their personal information in any way.
