Internet Safety - The Quiz

Oops! Wrong Answer!

The correct answer is:

Dear customer, Bank of America is closing your bank account. Please confirm your PIN at XJY23VB to keep your account activated.

YOUR answer was:

Hi there! Did u forget to tell me that you were going to be late tonight? Dinner is ready and we are all waiting for u to get here, should we keep waiting or start without u?!

You may not have expected a text about “being late” but there is nothing about this text to signal it is a scam. That said, if you suspect ANY text, delete it immediately.

The reason the bank text raises red flags is that the URL seems wrong AND a bank will NEVER ask you for your banking information or any private information. (To learn more about text safety, tap here to go to that tutorial.)
