Ve Vish You a Money SMishmas

I've heard of phishing, where a fraudster attempts to relieve you of your greenbacks by simulating a genuine website, but I've never heard of vishing and smishing. Have you?

Turns out that the crooks are getting sneakier, and/or the victims are dumber.

Apparently Vishing is leaving a voicemail message, and SMishing is sending a text message. How on earth they're supposed to get anything out of that, I don't know.

Maybe I should read this article to find out?
