Phishing is more common in Norway nowadays

My wife’s mobile bill on Nov. got a 50 NOK extra item about “Video”. And she called ICE service and got reply said “You need to contact strex.no yourselves.”

We tried to open https://strex.no/ , and it obviously mentioned that the mobile number was not registered yet. Then we registered and found two transactions details, 50NOK and 1NOK, from “Varvelia Technologies LTD(4054) Video” . Looks like it got charged from mobile payment directly, which has not been enabled by us.

My wife recalled that she got a video link from her ex-colleagues and she clicked it.

Looks like a common Phishing… , but it looks like so easy to be cheated.

After logged into https://strex.no/ , Forside->Endre betalingsmåte, the default is Mobilregning, not sure for now whether it is enough just to change it to “Kort – Betalingene belastes det kortet du til enhver tid har valgt.”

Jeg har ikke bestilt dette og har ikke godtatt betaling via mobil – hvem kan jeg kontakte?

Contact tjenesteleverandøren myself? Is it a joke?
