As a techie and pretty careful with my phones and the phones that I test, I was scammed last night.
I used a software called battery calibration (and has been for a long time) and a message popped up last night and asked if I wanted to upgrade to battery super charger. I replied yes and it downloaded the program.
Immediately upon answering yes, a text message came up from 00099922 with a phone number 888-878-5912 and as below
Tekttrip by texts 4 me subscription. 1 alert $4/month. Reply Yes to confirm.
It send an auto yes (using the yes from the question if I wanted to upgrade to the battery super charger).
I send an immediate STOP to stop the subscription immediately. Obviously and I am sure they will charge me at least $4 for that.....
Beware of this new scam.
