Beware of the New iPhone Text Scam
Smartphone owners, particularly iPhone users, are the target of another new scam. And if you have an iPhone, you may have been duped without even knowing it.
This phishing scam is in the form of a text message that says your Apple ID or iCloud account needs to be updated or else it will be terminated (which would be detrimental for any iOS user). To prevent this, you're instructed to follow the link included in the text. And this is where the hackers take over — the link sends you to a fraudulent site requesting your information, including your first and last name and even passport information.
