    Watch for scam texts pretending to be from Verizon, AT&T, Hulu, FedEx

    The on-going pandemic-related stress surely must be worth a free-gift, bonus or some sort of discount somewhere. 

    Unfortunately, we’re seeing an onslaught of texts promoting fake COVID-19 themed discounts and deals. 

    The Better Business Bureau mentions two specific scams that are hitting consumers in September. 

    There’s the text pretending to be from Hulu. “Due to the pandemic, Hulu is giving everyone a free one-year subscription to help you stay at home.” All you have to do is click on a link, which of course, will lead to all sorts of trouble.

    And there’s the text pretending to be from Verizon. “COVID-19 REFUND. VERIZON COMPANY is giving out $950 to all users of our Verizon service.” Again, let’s think about this a bit. Why would Verizon or any company be giving out hundreds of dollars in refund cash? Yep, it’s a scam.
