    Scamware warning

    I've had all the scam messages in this story, but fortunately did not fall for any of them. Beware!

    People have to be complete dumbasses to fall for these.

    Spelling is atrocious and links are questionable at best.

    It's been publicised on every news, current affairs and morning show, but Mick has always had an eye for the obvious.

    I have to agree, Ian. I've even had them on my mobile phone.
    Quite a few, actually. No, lots. No, more than that. A ****ing lot!

    Yeah, I got this exact text today - looked dodgy as so I just deleted it. Had enough of scammers at the moment trying to sell some stuff on Gumtree. Had 2 today who were on Military bases and wanted to pay via Paypal and have an associate pick the bits up.

    What are the odds of that? Scamware warning

    Relatives have had similar scam messages on iPhone.
    Bad spelling is certainly a giveaway, but people have been tricked.
    I realise it's been around a while - I've deleted at least 30 messages - but I posted it because it's now an official warning.

    Text cannot differentiate the destination device.

    What cannot however happen - even if the link is
    Clicked - is that the Flubot cannot be loaded onto an IPhone.

    They are secure.
