Oh no! Our account at Metro Bank has been disabled. At least that’s what the email says and that we need to resolve important issues to release our account again. Good job we don’t have an account at Metro Bank. The scammer just hopes to accidentally reach enough people who do have such an account that some will take the bait.
A bank payment made to us has been returned to the payee. Good job the email has an attached file giving full details so we can find out what happened. Not really of course, the attached is an “rar” file designed to get malware past the anti-virus scanners. We wont be opening that and have never had any dealings with the company name on the email ‘Shangiagang Co’.
A strange email arrives claiming to be from tools.com which is a website for a group who appear to be trying to create a worldwide tool selling business. The email goes into information about bank guarantees and SBLC notes and how the Internet is full of fake stories and lies about them. “All you have flying around are 100% fakes”. Then he claims he can offer much better finance and offers loans at 3% interest. So, a non existent company offers low interest loans to people they don’t know, in any country of the world for any reason. Let me think on how likely that is to be a scam. It’s 100%. No thanks.
An email from Monzo customer service tells me they have strengthened their security and my account is temporarily disabled. I have to key in my details to release the account. A standard phishing email trying to get my login details. Good job I don’t have an account with Monzo.
An email claiming to be DHL tells me my package is waiting to be delivered. I just have to confirm the 1.99 Euro charge first. But the sender’s email address is blog @venusindex.com which is not DHL, so I wont be clicking anything in that email.
