Don't trust that alert as proof of payment. It could be a Scam method.

I just found this story on Bellanaija:
http://www.bellanaija.com/2014/12/20/new-season-new-scams/
The scammer 'paid' for the merchandise, seller confirmed the payment via phone alert, and then handed over the goods, in this case a car valued at about $15,000 with documents. 
It turned out that the alert was fake, probably just a cloned message from a sender NOT the bank but resembling the bank.

This is terrible.
These criminals are ruining 'trust' in our society.
They should be found and punished.
