“Congratulations. You have won a $50 Costco voucher as a reward for your purchases”. Strange since I don’t shop at Costco and have never joined. SCAM.
From the constant stream of message such as “your package is out for delivery” from Fedex and similar messages from other delivery companies, I must be buying dozens of things every week for delivery. Definitely not true plus the email actually came from direynao11ya @direx881yaya.com which is not Fedex or any other delivery company.
Next one was from Robben Davis. “official notification congregation your compensation fund $4.8m has approved in your email so confirm your delivery address including your cellphone number. to enable us continue with delivery of your package. Some strange use of grammar in that message and that’s all there is to the message. No attempt to make it look genuine – there are many very lazy scammers.
Some scammers try to frighten people e.g. “The Terrifying Event That Will Change…”. “Since it would create mass hysteria and CHAOS”. What is the email actually about? That’s hard to guess as the frighteners could be about anything. It does also say “It has nothing to do with nuclear attacks, EMPS or even terrorism”. But that’s the only detail. The aim of the message is to get gullible people to click a link to watch a terrifying video. All rubbish of course.
Yet another scammer’s email tells me for maybe the hundredth time this year that my subscription with MacAfee Anti-Virus has been renewed. The scammers all pick a different price for this despite it being very easy to find out what the actual subscription price is. This latest one chose $369.99 and the point of the email is to get you to phone a set number to cancel the renewal. But of course the scammer on the phone needs your details in order to make that cancellation. So instead of cancelling a mistake you would find your payment card has been emptied. No thanks.
