Re: VZN Free Msg offering gift. Is this legit?

I received a similar message from a different number. Oddly enough, the message did not come on my Verizon cell phone--it came on my phone from Lively so that was the first warning!  I did NOT click on the link.  I reported the message to Verizon.  I went online to my Verizon account and checked for messages about "gifts".  No messages, of course! I then deleted the text message.

I just got this text from 561-617-0072:

VZW FREE MSG:

Your February Due is processed.  Thanks, here is a thank you gift from us https://t.co/3Kh4Dknsen

 

I knew it was a spam, I've never received any gifts from Verizon.

Free Msg: Your bill is paid for March. Thanks, here's a little gift for you: sirdt47.xyz/85GBFm397K

Got this message above today and I did click on this link causing my phone screen to turn warning ⚠️ red then I clicked go back to safety that took my back to a Google home page thankfully. The interesting thing this message was sent from my own phone number that I store notes on if you can believe it. However, delete this spam or phishing message immediately!

 I received this message from myself. It came from my own number some how. I did not click the link assuming it is a phishing.

I’ve received this same message, but the number it came from was my phone number?!? What should I do?

If you received a text message from your own phone number with a link to click that's normally a sure sign of spam or smishing, so I would not click anything in the link. I would report that message as spam and move on.

Oh no! Please delete this message as it is SPAM. We would never send you a message via your phone number. These scammers are getting smarter. Please do not click on any suspicious links. Do you have any questions about this?
