    Treat everything as suspicious . They are hoping people will click the link without thinking
    It happens alot, usually links on email though .

    " FluBot automatically sends text messages from infected devices to contacts it has received from other infected device"

    "Do not click on the link if you receive a suspicious text message, and do not install any app or security update the page asks you to "
    "If you have been affected by this campaign, you should factory reset your device as soon as possible. This will delete any data on your phone, including personal data "

    This "parcel" scam has been widely advertised as a scam.
    I get another periodic weirdo . My mobile phone rings showing a nr supposedly in UK but if I answer and say hello nothing happens. i have previously reported such to Netsafe.
    I have BitDefender installed on my phone. Any ideas of what such phonecalls are trying to accomplish?
