Kane In Your Corner podcast: Consumer alert on 'smishing' scams - listen herePosted: Updated:
Walt Kane sits down with Melissa Companick of the Better Business Bureau to discuss the awareness and prevention of one of the fastest growing scams in the country - text/SMS phishing or "smishing" scams.
We all are aware of emails that appear to be spam and that we should delete without opening, but most of us are conditioned to look and immediately respond to text messages - and thats what the scammers are banking on.
Walt also addresses a new scam that seeks potential cord cutters and claims to offer you better deals on your cable or satellite TV. Be wary of these deals that are definitely too good to be true.
