Anstey Omar wants to interest me in buying a CBT Mail Extractor – that is a piece of software that reads websites, social media posts, business directories etc. and picks out any email addresses. This isn’t illegal but it is a nasty way to get email addresses to sell to punters. The owners of the websites and social media accounts don’t want or expect their email addresses to be copied in this manner but it is difficult to stop. Bear Tech Software – get lost.
Lots of scammers send out messages trying to trap Netflix subscribers. Your account is due for renewal or your invoice is overdue or something similar. This latest one claims my subscription has been paid twice so I am due a refund. Unusually the sender’s email address is @linkedin.com which is not Netflix. All rubbish.
A message claiming to be from NatWest bank tells me that my mobile number has been changed and I need to authorise that change. Seems unlikely as I dont have a NatWest account. Just the normal scammer lies.
Most people’s mobile phone come with a free voicemail service, but some people take out a paid voicemail service for various reasons. An email says there is a new voicemail waiting for me at the radio station voicemail account and I just have to click to listen to the message. All lies of course as the email is from somos-nante.com which is a not a service I ever subscribed to.
Bitcoin cryptocurrency is very popular with scammers as it is difficult to trace. Coinpayments tell me that my Bitcoin payment to some unknown person has failed and needs to be repeated. All made-up of course.
