Last year, we blogged about fake scam promotion on cell phones which lure victim to provide their sensitive and personal information. Mobile users are increasing day by day and that’s where scammers are using mobile platform to promote their fake scams. Many times, people receives fake mobile SMS from scammers mainly related to lottery, money scam etc.

Most of the time SMS contains scammers email address and asks for user’s personal information. The victim who fails to understand motive behind SMS sends his/her personal information to scammer and may loose his/her personal identity or often leads to paying the money to scammer.
