    Text message scam I had today

    This is the actual text. from 07762301410

    Hi mum, my phone's malfunction. Texting you from a friend's, but their battery is at 0%. Please urgently message my new number (07492465537) x

    end of text.

    The clues that it's a scam attempt. The real son/daughter would say, Hi mum it's Kevin/Karen. And they would say the friends name. I guess they will reply to the urgent message with a plea for money to pay of a debt etc
