The new year has arrived, and the incredible email scams are coming thick and fast.
Here’s another one to be wary of.
It takes a strong tone because “this is the second billing notice” . . . which . . . “is now overdue”.
It is sent to “Undisclosed Recipients”, which immediately tells you that it is a circularised email, and not an email sent to you individually.
If it were a legitimate invoice, surely it would be sent only to you personally.
The scary part is that this email has an attachment.
RULE #1 for dealing with SPAM
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER and NEVER open attachments on suspicious emails.
At the risk of repeating myself . . . never open attachments.
That is the quickest way to get a virus on your computer . . . a bug that will either crash your hard drive or capture your keystrokes, (including passwords), and send them back to the hacker . . . or worse!
By now, I am hoping that most people will have this information.
And hopefully this post has reached one more person who did not know before.
