What to do when you receive a spam job offer SMS

Have you been getting unknown links to jobs offers via SMS? Or loan offers and prompts of your accounts being credited with sums from strange numbers? Here is how to deal with them.

Times are hard and a lot of us are looking for alternative sources of income. We know and understand the struggle. And from the look of it so do some scammers. Some send very compelling texts and their approach cab be very convincing. But there’s an easy way to deal with these texts.

Block and delete!

– Trust me

Scammers have resorted to offering fake jobs and loans via text to take advantage of hard up for cash Ghanaian nationals.

The easiest way to block an individual is through their contact card. Open the contact info of the SMS you want to block and scroll to the Block Button option which can be found at the top right of the screen (with Android) or bottom (iOS). There, you’ll find a button to block them. Tapping this button will prevent the person from being able to send you any further text messages.

Unsolicited messages from unknown numbers are red flags. Any links sent via SMS from such numbers should not be opened. They may contain websites filled with spyware that can hack your personal data.

This is an easy PSA to you and yours. Keep your phone and access to your data secure by being safe than sorry.
