Sometimes it can be difficult to know if a text message is real or not, the way they are written can be almost identical to real texts, and scam texts can even appear from the same number.

This is a tactic called ‘number spoofing’, whereby scammers change the phone number seen on a caller ID to make you think it has come from a genuine organisation.

But, always remember that a genuine text message from your bank will never ask you to provide passwords, personal or financial informations in a message.
