The Latest In Scams: Phone Spoofing & Flubot

This morning I got a phone call from someone saying that they had missed a call from my phone number… I was confused as I had not made any phone calls that day.

Similarly earlier in the week, I had called someone back as it looked like a legit Aussie mobile phone number and a potential customer. When I called them they were confused as they had not called anyone that day too.

I did some research and realised this was a new method used by scammers called Phone Spoofing.

In this video I briefly chat about it and also talk about the latest in scam texting called Flubot.
