New “Your Account is Locked” SMS Scam Text Messages Phishing for Amazon, Netflix, Venmo, and More

New "Your Account is Locked" SMS Text Message Scam Phishing for Amazon, Venmo, and More
Share the knowledge

A huge batch of scam text messages with links going to onlinehome.us have been going out, phishing for your Amazon, Netflix, Venmo, and other credentials. Many of them appear to include the strings “membershpspprt” or “mailspprtaccnt” in the ‘from’ field, suggesting that they are all part of a bot effort using the same script or scripts.

Of course, if you read the messages, they all reveal the fact that they are scams in one way or another (usually in several ways), from the very bizarre “from” addresses, such as “appx.rstrt-membershpspprt-servsstandarscons.hbxsaems8197-621fiie@wisaktifkuh.com” (although you will almost certainly only see the first part of that address), to the poor English, and to the misspelled words.

And then, of course, there are the links. Nearly all of them that we have seen so far are hosted at the domain “onlinehome.us”. According to [destination content has been removed at other end :~( ], “Onlinehome.us is a phishing site that is commonly used by cybercriminals to host phishing websites and steal personal and financial information from unsuspecting victims.” Not that we needed the confirmation of course, given all of the evidence, but it’s nice to have our own conclusions supported by others in the industry.

The messages, all scam text messages with a link for you to follow, read like some of the following, which are real examples from some of the recent scam messages:

(At least that second one corrected ‘recovery’ to ‘recover’, but still misspelled ‘below’ as ‘bellow’.)

So far the ‘from’ addresses that we have seen include these:

appx.rstrt-membershpspprt-servsstandarscons.hbxsaems8197-621fiie@wisaktifkuh.com
appsx.custs-mailspprtaccnt-ntflxnetregard.jhgzulwpth4298-111uqea@jossgaes6.es

Of course, generally our readers know to not follow any link that arrives in their text messages or email out of the blue, and to instead go directly to the website of the service that has supposedly sent the message, and to log into their account directly. So hopefully this is just confirmation of what you already know if you receive one of these text messages.

We’ve had reports of people receiving 4, 5, even 6 of these messages a day. How many have you received?
