Nothing Like a Bad Phishing Attempt

Wed, 20 Jul 2022

There’s been a phishing scam targeting M&T Bank customers via SMS since 2020. It’s still going strong, judging by this spam text I got a short while ago.

I’m not a M&T bank customer, but perhaps whoever had my phone number before me was. Not really my problem, though, since I know better than to be taken in by such a transparent ploy.

Of course, the Federal Communications Commission is useless as usual. They can make sure nobody can say “fuck” on the radio, but they can’t do anything about robocalls or SMS spam.
