Phishing Attack in Finland Uncovers Sophisticated Smishing Scheme
The Helinski Police Department is investigating a sophisticated smishing scheme in which attackers were able to steal more than 200,000 euros (US$228,736), Yle reports. The scammers sent text messages impersonating Posti Group, Finland’s main postal service. The messages claimed that packages addressed to the user had been sent to their nearest post office. The user was instructed to click a link in the message that would take them to a phishing site, where they were told to verify their identity by entering their banking details.
