SMS Phishing Link

I got a text message early in the morning which appeared to be from Eastlink about an outstanding toll. I have not been getting a lot of sleep lately and was obviously not thinking straight so I clicked on the link. Only after that did I realise that I should not have done that. I have done a scan using Trend Micro but nothing has been detected. Am I in clear?

Hi @shane_mcnamara!

Thank you for sharing this here in our community. 

Protect yourself from scams make sure that Web Guard and Fraud Buster are on. 

After you click the link, did you enter any personal information on the phishing website?

Here are some phishing scam related good reads from our weekly articles.

G'day @tm_kree​ ,

I have both Web Guard and Fraud Buster enabled.

I did not enter any information into the website.

Can I assume that because the scan did not detect anything that I am in the clear?

That's really great, Web Guard and Fraud Buster works hand in hand for scam protection. 

Yes, you are cleared.
