Does anyone know how they succeed in spoofing senders details in sms.
No, I am not going to do it.
Do they use a laptop linked to a mobile phone to type ((286_28))?
I don’t know, but I doubt it involves anything as simple as a laptop or a mobile ‘phone.
It’s primarily overseas, so mobile or other doesn’t matter; it’s going to be fairly specialist bulk telecomms equipment, probably similar to a large legit call-centre like whatever Qantas uses OS.
 
So no answer to my emails.

Send chargeback request to Latitude, support ticket with vendor auto closes after 3 days, so reply that I'm doing chargeback and leave it there.

Receive email they value my business and if I've tried the product for 30 days and not happy they'll offer full refund.

LOL. Chargeback does the trick. Why couldn't they provide support without threat of chargeback?
 
I guess places like the legit ones, where they been conned, and us (end users who have been conned), charge backs by the credit card companies are the only way that it will work out.
But they are only good for the credit side of things, ie, ((I fell for the Liam Market scam, they couldnt send the goods, as their "accountant" ran off with the funds, but then, they offered me the job of being their accountant, and sending them the proceeds of the sales, into bitcoin")).
Ala (((Money Mule)))!.
I said no, my mum reported the company to SAPOL.
I paid via bank transfer ie Osko, bank said they couldnt do anything!
Do not use Liam Market at all cost.
Crooked as, mate, crooked as.
 
I have another one from our "friendly ATO (((agent)))".
SMS

ATO-24
AT0: You have Important allowance notification view at h8**s://2024assessment-processed.cc/a/

And with the fake alpha number spoofed from, how ever they do it, cant be blocked, so the only way is to delete it straight off, and let it keep coming.
At least with the 04 #, can block and delete, then phone wont sound with the number, but will still get notification of fake linkt sms.
 
Greetings,

I am Mrs. Randi Blicher, an account officer in Financial Services.

I personally discovered an inactive account worth US$13.4 million during our Bank's Annual Account Auditing.

Nobody has operated this account till date. Definitely, our Banking code of ethics will confiscate this fund if it remains inactive for a period of years without any claims.

In this regard, I earnestly need your full cooperation in transferring this money out of our bank to avoid our bank confiscating this fund. Our sharing ratio will be 50% for you and 50% for me.

Should you be interested to work with me on this project? Kindly get back to me for more information and Guidelines.

Best Regards,
Mrs. Randi Blicher

Still can tell author is from a NESB.
 
Would be scary when they spoof the sender, however way they do it as "CBA_AU", or "comm-bank-au", but any "bank" that uses the 04 phone number is a scam sms for sure.
That ACCC anti scam subagency could start putting out ads "do not respond to bank smss from an Australian mobile phone nmber, its a scam".

What is a netbak?
 
smishing? New one for me. What's that?
I believe it’s phishing (”fishing” for responses that give away details OR get people tangled-up in data-theft sites), except via SMS … hence smishing.


And now for some annoying information which may be helpful to someone, we had a very annoying leak which involved a plumber week-before-last, and so I needed to answer unknown numbers in case I missed a plumber. About 3-4 days of answering unknown numbers, and I’ve gone from a scam call every 3-4 days to about a half-dozen per day.
 
Smishing does exist as a term, probably the same mob that does the phishing banking ones.
Just google it, their aim is for you to download malware, by clicking on the links.
Its bad when the scammers can put "TelStar_Au" or anything they want!
I purposely misspelt that one above.
