Internet crime (cyber crime) tips to stay safe

Key ways to stay safe on your smart phone:

  1. Do not respond to suspicious text messages. Don't even reply by messaging “STOP” or “NO."
  2. Do not click on hyperlinks or attachments in suspect messages.
  3. Take steps to filter unwanted messages or block them before they reach you.

Consumer advocates offer guidance on protecting against scam texts. Read their advice—and consider sharing it with loved ones.

  • Several mobile phone providers allow you to block a sender by forwarding unwanted texts to 7726 ("SPAM"). Check with your provider about this and other blocking options available on your phone, through your wireless provider or using a call-blocking app. Here's more from the Federal Trade Commission.
  • Do not respond to texts from unknown numbers or others that appear suspicious. Replying “STOP” or “NO” signals that your phone number is active, and your number could be sold to other criminal.
  • Keep in mind that scammers often spoof phone numbers — including in texts — by making it appear the texter is local or from a legitimate entity to trick you into responding.
  • Be extra cautious if pressured to immediately divulge information or make a payment.
  • Never share personal or financial information via a text, email or phone call.
  • If you're not sure a text is legit, contact the purported sender using a phone number you know to be legitimate.
  • Do not click on links or attachments in untrustworthy texts. If a friend sends you a text with a suspicious link, check with the acquaintance to determine if he or she has been hacked.
  • Report scam texts to the FCC, the FTC, the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center and to the entity whose name appears in the suspect message.
