METEOR CUSTOMERS ARE being warned about a text scam that re-directs people to a different commercial website.

The issue was brought to light by a top user on the Meteor forum, who calls himself JimmyIreland.

On his blog, he explained that the scam text involves a redirect to the Meteor Mobile site, which in turn redirects you to an online flower store.

The scam begins when you get a text saying you have been sent flowers, with a link for you to click on.

The number begins with 085 and the link within it is  http://met.2fh.co/meteor/met/ – the real link for the Meteor online account site is https://my.meteor.ie/meteor/transactional/login

Meteor said:

We have been made aware of text messages advising that “someone has sent special flowers to you” and encouraging MyMeteor customers to follow a link, using your MyMeteor to login to receive them. The link included in the text message is http://gg.gg/mettie and is not an official MyMeteor site. Please be careful with any suspicious texts and offers, and never provide any account details on sites you do not trust.

Have you received this text?
