Attention: smishing bpost

Don't get caught by fake text messages!

Fake text messages claiming to be from bpost are circulating with the message that the recipient has won a prize. Via a link, you are taken to another screen where personal information, bank and card details are requested.

Text messages are used increasingly often to send false links for the purpose of defrauding people. This form of phishing even has a name: smishing, or SMS phishing.

What to do?

  • Do not click on the link in the text message.
  • If you have clicked on the link, do not complete the fields and terminate any interaction.

Fake messages, including fake text messages, can be forwarded to suspicious@safeonweb.be.

Learn to identify fake messages.

Take the phishing test now and don’t be caught out ever again!
