The Federal Communications Commission released an alert warning consumers of the growing threat of robotext scams. Threat actors can spoof phone numbers in order to make a consumer trust the source of a text message. Some scammers use a local number while others impersonate government agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Consumers who have filed complaints with the FCC say some of the texts resemble email spam, with links to unwanted and unsolicited products.
