The majority of T-mobile users have had some experience with spam messages and more spam messages are still being churned out today by scammers. T-mobile, like every other carrier, has devised a defense against such spam texts. This protection comes in form of caller ID, Scam Block, message Blocking, T-Mobile app, or Fraud ID. 

How to identify spam text?

 Promises of random prizes – If you get a text out of nowhere promising that you won a prize you do not recognize. It is likely a spam text. Do not fall for it, simply ignore or report. Family Crisis text – If you suddenly get a text from an unsaved number that claims to be a family member and asks that you help him or her, it is likely a spam text. It is advisable to ensure you are protected from spam messages such as these as they can be very convincing. Strange Number – Most numbers used to send spam messages are strange-looking numbers. From the very awkward-looking four-digit numbers to super long unrecognizable ones.

Refund – Some Spams also come in the form of a refund for a service you are currently being charged for by your service provider. They include links to malicious sites to click on to claim this refund. Do not click such links.

Harmless Advert or promotion – spam texts too might come in form of harmless adverts or promotions of a good or service. What makes this a spam text is that it is unsolicited. This kind of spam text is sent by companies who simply want to get a wider reach of customers.

Types of scam

iCloud Scams – Apple product users have all their passwords and personal information saved on their iCloud and no other person can access this except given access to the iCloud. These scammers would send texts pretending to be from Apple and request that you sign in to your iCloud account using a link they provided. Once they are signed in, they have access to all the details encrypted in the iCloud.

Phishing Scams – This is the most prevalent type of scam, texts are sent to your mobile appearing to be from a notable source – your internet provider, your bank, or your insurance company. They take on this false identity and ask unsuspecting users for personal information about them to access their money or sell such personal information on the black market.

Travel Scams – Ever wondered why you got a text from the airline you last used offering you an unimaginable discount if you click a link provided in the text? This happens when a third party gets access to a flight manifest and uses it for scam purposes. They sometimes say you have won a free trip and only need to pay a small amount to claim the free trip.

Prize Scams – These types of text contain information about winning a prize or a lottery you did not participate in. Also, ask for a fee to cover the logistics of your prize. No lottery organization would ever ask you to pay to claim your prize.

Shopper Scams – These scams target frequent users of local shopping malls and promise them free shopping vouchers if they can pay a small amount to claim them.  

Investment or Ponzi schemes – Some of these scammers hide under the guise of being an investment platform. They promise to double, sometimes, triple your investment in the shortest time possible. They are so dangerous, do not fall for them.
