Mobile spam message warns of hacked Google accounts

While this appears to be a typical phishing scam, it might not be. Experts say it’s difficult to determine what the scammers’ goal is.

When users reply to the message, they’re told to enter the verification code “-44-” when they’re called back. When victims enter the code, they’re told that “voice mail is ready to be set up.”

It’s uncertain if this is a trick to get people to sign up for premium SMS services, or if it’s an ineffective phishing scam. Whichever the case may be, users should not counter to such messages since nothing good can come of it.

If you fear that your Google account might have been hacked, simply change your password and enable two-factor authentication. You can check if someone has been accessing your profile by using the account activity feature from your Gmail account.
