me today and my friend the other day got txt from short number 8778 saying:

Hi %username%, we have tried to deliver parcel: NZ1234567-19, Status: pending in distribution center. Please click to trace: %generatedShortLink% 

Short link leads to (I know, url is obvious scam, but not for mobile browsers) the only purpose of which to show user some content with ... - $3.25 SHIPPING FEE HAS NOT BEEN PAID ... and button leading to <<href=";c=22933&amp;s1=">>

Markup also has link to scammer profile in head
