It’s nice of the TV Licensing authority to send me an email to remind me that the licence is due for renewal in 3 days and that I can renew online by clicking the link. Only problem is that the email is actually from test @moil.co.in which is an Indian domain name and obviously not the TV licensing authority, plus our licence isn’t due for renewal till next year.
The email, from IT Helpdesk, tells me that my email password expires in 1 day. Hence I must click to verify a new password. However, the email is actually from perfect-body.ro which is Romanian and clearly not my email provider.
Messages and adverts have appeared with strange titles such as ‘Global Crisis: People are raking in millions using Lewis Hamilton’s new APP’. Lewis Hamilton does actually have an APP but it’s simply some emojis based on his face. It does not make money for anyone. Don’t be conned.
Coraline sends me (and millions of other people) messages to tell the good news that Superlotto in honour of its 25th anniversary is giving me free lottery tickets. NOPE. The email is from a Russian email address where most of the world’s scam messages are arising these days. No thanks.
An email from Samsung congratulates us on winning a new Galaxy S20 mobile. We just have to answer a few simple questions to receive our new smartphone within 72 hours. It’s an obvious scam as the email is actually from bodbend.com not Samsung. Plus, we didn’t enter any competitions, plus the sender doesn’t know our name, just an email address. If you haven’t entered a competition, then you cannot possibly win it.
