"(PaymentFailed.MoneyTransferCanceled. ForMoreInfoFollow:https://bitly .com/2a8QTbY [WesternUnionMSG])"
The link inthe phishing text message goes to a phishing Western Union website created by cybercriminals. Remember, the legitimate Western Union website is located at: www.westernunion.com.
Now, once the potential victims enter their Western Union accounts credentials on the fake website in an attempt to sign-in, their credentials will be sent to the scammers who have created the fake website, who will use the stolen information to hijack their victims’ accounts. Once the scammers have access to their victims’ accounts, they will use the accounts fraudulently.
Victims of the Western Union text message phishing scam should change their passwords immediately and contact Western Union. They should let Western Union know that they were tricked by a fake text message, which took them to a phishing website where they unknowingly entered their accounts’ credentials in an attempt to sign-in, thinking they were on the legitimate Western Union website.
