Home › Forums › I received the standard SMS from my telco that I usually receive when traveling abroad, but this time, it is saying I am in the Dominican Republic even though I am all the way over here the Philippines. Is this some sort of SIM swap or cloning hack? What can I do?

I also received a couple of 2FA messages from Authy that I did not request. Please help, thanks.

Call your cell provider and ask if anything has been done recently with your account, like requesting a new SIM card.
Texts can pretty trivially spoofed so, this may be part one of a multipart phishing campaign.
I text you “Authy wants authorization”, then call you using the Authy’s phone number and then say “Hey looks like someone is trying to access your account, I need to validate your identity with your security question.”
You don’t provide information when someone calls you. Hang up and call back.
