Smishing stands for SMS Phishing and is a term to label scams that try and suck you in over text messages. Bad people are increasingly targeting you through your smartphone. They send texts that trick you into doing something against your own best interest. At the moment, there is a mystery shopping scam going on, starting out with a text invitation, asking you to send an email for more info which then gets you roped into the scam.
