Possible Smishing

I was wondering whether anyone else had received a text message from the number +44 7480 632098 and knows whether it is a scam. 

They were able to correctly relay to me the day when my new kit will be arriving in my home so I was wondering how they got that information. And a quick google search tells me that others believe the number to be a scam as well. 

That being said, no links were included in the message. 

The message sent was: "Hi there. Your new kit will arrive on XXX. Yodel will be in touch with your 2 hour estimated delivery slot on the day."

Re: Possible Smishing

Hi MBA789, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's really great having you on board with us in the Community. 

The message does indeed sound like one that we would send to customers so it does sound like a genuine message. This isn't to say that other people have not received a suspicious text though. 

Be sure to keep yourself safe by making sure you only click on links within messages that you know for sure are genuine. 

If you have any further concerns, please let us know. 

Thanks,

Kath_F
