Danish Courts Warn of Fake SMS Scams Targeting Citizens

The Danish Courts have issued a warning that they are not behind the text messages claiming to contain Digital Post and asking recipients to update their information via a link. According to a statement on the courts’ website, several citizens have received these fake messages. The messages urge recipients to click on a link and enter personal information. The Danish Courts emphasize that these messages should be deleted if received. Data from the police shows a growing trend where criminals use fake text messages as a method of fraud. The National Unit for Special Crime (NSK) reported in April that the number of fraud reports via text messages increased by 130 percent over the last year compared to the year before. The police have received many reports of fraud messages, where the sender pretends to be a bank, the Tax Authority, or a shipping company. These messages often contain a link to a fake website. By clicking on the link and entering information such as card details or personal ID information, individuals risk having their data intercepted and misused by criminals.
