Ofcom, the UK's communications regulator, is warning UK consumers about a mobile scam in the region. The scam involves text massages that impersonate Ofcom and seduce a consumer into clicking a particular link.
"This is a scam. If you receive the text message then do not click on the website," Ofcom was warned UK mobile users.
The text message at hand claims to be from the "Ofcom Communications Team", and it comes with a mobile phone number of the sender in six digits. You can report the scam to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or via the website http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/
If you are concerned that you may have submitted your personal details then contact the Information Commissioners Office on 0303 123 1113, or via the website http://www.ico.gov.uk/
