Phishing text


(Sandrap) #1

Hi everyone.

I have been away with my 2 friends for a weekend and they don’t have monzo. But they have just received a monzo phishing text with an activation code. Has anyone else experienced this?!

Hey @Sandrap, did they both receive a message? Would you be able to ask them to forward the message(s) (and their phone numbers if possible!) to security@monzo.com?

Hi
Yes they both received it on a group iMessage. The person knew what city we had been in this weekend too as well, but when we called the number it just dialled out.

Okay perfect will do thank you!

Curious to see what the text was about. It could’ve been just a mistake from someone mistyping their number and ending up putting your number instead. Unless there’s a link/call to action to interact with a malicious website/app it’s not phishing.
