Text Scam, How Do They Know?
A few weeks ago, I paid my wireless bill online. Immediately after I paid it, I get a text message that says "Latest bill processed, thank you for your support" and it was followed by a link. Thinking it was from AT&T, I click the link, fill out the survey, and pay the shipping for a free watch.
So, I realized it was a scam, but since then, every time I pay my bill I get a similar text message. How do they know when I pay my bill? I don't pay it on my phone, I pay it on my laptop.
