A Scam Robo-text is usually a fake alert - like someone is using your credit card. Consumer Watchdog Teresa Murray says to beware. "The Scam Texts are more dangerous than Scam Calls. You have a couple of seconds where this text is scaring the heck out of you - and you one have a second to click on that button!"
