How to stay safe?
Do not trust messages coming from unknown numbers, especially those asking for urgent updates of addresses or numbers.

If a message claims to be from a company, contact them directly through a verified phone number or website. Do not use the numbers or websites given in the text.

Avoid clicking on links given in suspicious texts. If very important, type the website address manually.

Also, never share personal or financial information through text messages. Also, report any suspicious text to the appropriate authorities.
