Beware of SMS Scams

Here’s a list of scams that I have received via short message service on my mobile phone. I have highlighted the incriminating keywords in bold that should never be revealed to anyone in any situation.

Basic rule of thumb is: if in doubt, don’t do it!

  1. I also recievd similar sms as below:
    From: 66600
    Your Hong Leong Credit Card limit (issued by former EON Bank) will be increased to RM6500. To accept, sms YESINCIC No.. to 33188 by 26/01/12.

    I am not sure, this is scam or not. Will get back to you all once i called the Banck customer service.
