New scam text targets Canada Post visitors who enter post office in Mississauga and Brampton

The latest scam text making the rounds in Mississauga is targeting people who have recently visited Canada Post.
The new text claims there is a delay with a recently shipped package and encourages the recipient to click a link embeded in the message.
The recipient of this message who reported it to Insauga had just recently visited a Mississauga post office.
These kinds of scam texts are called “smishing” scams by cyber security experts. Such experts like those at TD Bank, advise anyone who receives a text like it to ignore the message.
Even a reply can signal to the scammers that the number is active and open the target up to further messages.
