Near 618, the major e-commerce platforms have launched promotional activities, at the same time, the fraudsters also took action. Recently, Mr. Wu, a citizen of Shandong Province, reported to the police that he had received a short message from the official customer service phone of an e-commerce platform, informing him that he could exchange 618 points for a large amount of deduction. Mr. Wu has no doubt that he opened the link and entered his payment account number, password and other information according to the requirements of the website. As a result, all the balance in the payment account number was transferred.

After the incident, Mr. Wu found the e-commerce platform for verification for the first time. The e-commerce platform said that the official SMS will not add prefixes such as area code. The SMS is not sent by the e-commerce platform, and the points exchange activities provided by the platform can only exchange platform coupons or physical gifts, not cash.

Online police remind: close to the promotion of e-commerce, many citizens will receive high-frequency promotional text messages sent by merchants, which may contain the official Shanzhai text messages sent by fraudsters through number changing software or pseudo base station. When receiving similar SMS messages, the public should be more vigilant. They should not blindly believe and click the official number, and they should not fill in personal information, payment account number and password on the links provided by the other party. Beware of being cheated!
