An email claiming to be from Wells Fargo bank warning me that someone in Russia has made multiple attempts to login to my account and they have had to restrict my account accordingly. To gain access again I just need to complete their verification form and if I don’t then the account will be blocked. Just a typical phishing scam and the message is from help68yf65.com which is obviously not Wells Fargo bank.
Frank Anthony from Cape Town says he will be visiting my country in one or two weeks time and wants me to help him to invest $47 million in property. Of course – no problem. And he states at the end of the email “My fund is legal and genuine” so I can rest assured that this isn’t a scam because he has told me his fund is genuine. His email address is at Yandex which generally means it’s a Russian scammer.
An email from vee-so.date which should be a dating site but the email is a sales pitch “Build 30 pounds of muscle in 30 days” That’s a physical impossibility so no thanks Mr. Scammer.
Peter Bill wants to invest in my country and I get 35% of the funds. Sounds a good deal, but he doesn’t know my name or even which country I’m in and his email address is Cuba. OOPS.
A phishing email claiming to be Santander Bank, but is from act-one.uk. The email says I should review my transaction history to ensure no unauthorised transactions have taken place. The link provided for review looks like Santander.co.uk but is to esvin.net which is not Santander Bank. The scammer is clearly planning to make unauthorised transactions on my account as soon as I follow her link and login. But that’s not going to happen.
