  • Beware of the Revolut text scam. The banking app Revolut is being spoofed and its customers have been receiving text messages saying that a payment has been scheduled or that a new device has been set up on their account. The text appears to come from Revolut and asks you to call a different number where a scammer will ask for your personal information. More info
