Why is the security code sent via SMS coming from a number that is named "Likely-SCAM"?!

Hey @eddyc, thanks for posting on our Community today!

 

Can you clarify where exactly is the number logged/named as "Likely-SCAM"?

 

A screenshot would also help, so feel free to send us one.

 

Thanks!

The SMS is not coming from a number with that name. It's likely just your phone not recognizing the number and tagging it as such, or you have a phone protect app that does this. The Call Protect app on my phone does the same thing with numbers it doesn't recognize.

Thanks very much for your prompt replies. This is very helpful. I'll proceed to accept the security code from this number.
