“Roaming Mantis” is stealing money and private information from people by using a phishing scam. The way it works is that victims received SMS messages or emails that appear to be from a legitimate company. The message will usually say something like “package has been sent” or “your account has been compromised.” When victims click on the link in the message, they are taken to a phishing website that looks very convincing. The website will ask for personal information like credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login passwords. Once the victim enters this information, the Roaming Mantis scammer has access to their accounts and can start stealing money.

They may also try to get you to click on a malicious link that will install malware on your computer.

If you receive an email or message from what appears to be a legitimate company or person but seems fishy, do not respond. If you are unsure whether the email is legitimate, contact the company directly through their official website or customer service number. Do not use the contact information in the email.

  • Email has poor grammar.
