Cell phone "smishing"

Here's a warning from Fortune (also on NBC Nightly News tonight) about smart phone smishing scams.

I have yet to get one that I recall.  But you should not respond to unexpected SMS financial messages;  you should go into the financial institution's website yourself (just as with email phishing).

And a few of these scams can infect phones with malware.
