Don’t fall for this Uber SMS scam, it’s a good one

It’s all too easy to fall victim to an authentic-looking phishing attempt nowadays, but this Uber SMS scam is one you’ll definitely want to avoid.

As you can see in the message above, it suggests that you’re about to be charged a whole load of money for a trip it claims you booked and provides a link to click if you want to cancel it.

Clicking the link takes you to an Uber log-in page that will harvest your details – one that doesn’t exist for desktop visitors in my testing.

I clicked the link so you don’t have to – you’ve been warned.
