stop trying to download things you don't know...before you expose all the apps in your phone to a third party

Why would you download anything from an unknown sender. Not sensible unless you are a security engineer doing penetration testing

If you open that thing your personal data will be transferred to the scammers. Delete it straight

For your phone to be hacked you would need to give access rights to whatever bloat or malware that's installed. It's an android policy. No app has access to your phone even when installed tilk you grant them access rights

Don't ever try to download it unless you want all the money in your bank account to disappear.

I get am plenty for my inbox. If you download the MMS the moment the message comes in, you will see it's a link nothing more.

Expect more of such when RCS messaging go mainstream
