SMiShing

SMiShing is a scheme. In this scheme, the identity thief sends spam text messages posing as a financial institution or other legitimate entity. The text message has a sense of urgency, and can scare the victim into thinking there is a serious emergency by leading the victim to believe he or she will suffer.
