DON'T CLICK! Dangerous text that you should NEVER click sweeps America – and it’s got a very strange secret

If your phone carrier is Verizon, then you may fall victim to a new SMS phishing (or "smishing") scam that aims to steal your personal information.

Specifically, the SMS states: "Free Msg: Your bill is paid for March. Thanks, here's a little gift for you."

Spoofing is a scam in which threat actors camouflage themselves as a known, trusted source to try to obtain financial details and/or sensitive information.

What's more, a number of people have reported that the text is coming from their own phone number.
