I keep getting a message on my phone "you12newmessagges.com" and believe this is a scam as it keeps telling me I am getting a "bonus". I use Firefox exclusively

Posted

As above I am suspicious of this message. Note spelling error in "messagges". The message comes up several times a day sometimes. I have clicked on it twice before but nothing happens. I am wondering if it is a phishing attempt or similar. It uses the Firefox logo, says I have a bonus added and to verify my account. My phone is a ZTE android OS 7.1.2

Hi

Yes, this certainly looks like a scam and I recomend you do not download any files or send any of your details to it.

I also recommend that you completely clear your browsing history in Firefox for Android.

Question owner

Thank you very much Seburo. The message now comes up "You have 1000$(sic) bonus" The latest is "AU Post approved" then new paragraph "Delivery Approved"followed by a tick. The message does not appear on either email or SMS on my phone, just on the homepage on opening it. Also nothing on my computers. AU Post refers to Australia Post - I have had a couple of deliveries via Australia Post recently. I have their tracking app on my phone so I will notify them of this. Thanks again.
