SMS Messages "Investments" Scams

An article regarding persons receiving SMS messages linked to investment scams.

I tried to find it on the Scamwatch website to no avail so I Googled “Investment scam SMS messages posing as ABC News articles” and found this link.

The ad on this page leads to this scam.

I reported it to Google and closed the ad only for a different ad to appear on the page.

This ad leads to this scam.

Reported it to Google and closed it only for another scam ad to appear, and so on.

Unbelievable. These grubs are now even advertising their scams on pages warning about these very types of scams

I just looked at the webpage again and the scam ads are already gone, replaced with legitimate ads.

Well done Google.
