Fox said: “I received a text message, allegedly from the Royal Mail, advising me that a package was waiting for me and I had to pay £2 to have it delivered.

“I was in a hurry and gave my bank details, only later realized it was a scam and lost £100 in the process.”

The usual scam tricks victims into revealing sensitive account and bank card information only to use the details to withdraw large sums of money.

The ex-commando said the experience prompted him to fully review suspicious messages to weed out potential fraud schemes.

He said: “Now every time I get a text or a call or need to share my card details, I make sure I stop everything else I’m doing.

“I’m giving this my full attention and really thinking about what’s being asked of me.

“Pretending to be a voice of authority or offering something that seems too good to be true are all pressure tactics scammers use to encourage you to fall for their scam.”

Fox is leading a new campaign by Goldman Sachs online bank Marcus to raise awareness of text fraud.
