I received an SMS message titled "OWNERS". The message read" "Requestor reservation from Stephanie Rigor: with this URL link attached.
Http://.ownersdirect.co.uk.p.............. (appeared to be the Owners Direct URL).
I am not enabled on my android for internet so checked my computer to view the details of the reservation. There was no email and when typing in the link from the SMS it came up with what appeared to be the Owners Direct website which I couldn't access. I logged out and used my 'favourites' to log in to see if the reservation was in my dashboard. I was diverted to the two stage verification which has given me problems in the past so I called them. Eventually I was speaking to a security person so checked my account and there was no sign of the rerservation.
It was a Phishing exercise to obtain my details to highjack reservations.
The advice was to change my password and never tap on a link on an SMS message. I suggest others do the same.
