I've just received this very convincing scam, so thought I'd post it as a warning to others.

The link takes you to a fake RM website which looks very genuine.

The ultimate goal is to get your credit card details.

The giveaways are the sender name and the .top domain but all other info is convincing to the unaware.

@gmarkj This type of scam is covered under the smishing section, however, I will update how to spot a smishing scam as the above SMS shows from an email address 👍
