So, what’s the dumbest scam or spam on the Internet this week?
An email supposedly from Yahoo telling me that I have violated a termination code (ID 504) (sounds somewhat impossible) and hence I need to upgrade my account.
If I open the attachment then somehow magically my account will be upgraded.
I don’t think so – this is just the usual scam.
The best thing is that the username of the message sender is tweety_divine.
How could you possibly take seriously an email from someone called tweety_divine?
And rather than just one message, the scammer has sent out huge numbers – we received more than twenty at the radio station.
They do have different usernames including ‘overexaggerating’ and ‘girdler’
Not to be taken seriously
