Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way


Fraud experts have issued fresh warnings over the latest ‘hi mum’ texts where scammers ‘prey on our goodwill with emotive stories’ and con parents into thinking their children are in trouble.

The highly effective phone scam plays on parents’ fears when scammers send a text message from a different number pretending to be one of their children before asking them to send money.

One error-ridden message sent from a standard UK phone number which was seen by MailOnline this morning read: ‘Mum, bad start to the day! Ive dropped my phone, please messge me back here,, (07922221899) once youve seen this!’

But this message is by no means an anomaly. 

In recent weeks, several people have reported receiving similar messages and have shared screenshots of incidents in which they have been targeted by ruthless scammers.

Another message from a regular number said: ‘I’ve been stressed out all morning mum. Please message urgently on 07510884785 xx’.

Meanwhile a longer message said: ‘Hi mum, just letting you know i’ve dropped by phone like an idiot earlier on and it’s cracked the screen really bad so i’m on a old phone for the meantime, i would’ve called but i can’t hear anything coming from this phone it’s really old but luckily i have insurance so i’ll get a new one in about 2 days.’
