There is a new wave of fraudulent SMS sent from 1-410-200-500 to users located mainly in India, USA and EU. The fraudulent SMS messages contain a malicious URL that redirects users to a fraudulent website used to steal your personal information and credit card, make sure you never click on the link and do not enter anything on the remote (malicious) website. Some messages ask you to reply with your email or to call another number, DO NOT DO THAT!

Here are some examples of SMS received by a few users:
