More fake emails arrive, supposedly from Chinese companies. This one starts with “Hello website” as the spam list they bought must have included the radio station website address. “How can it possible become wine supplier”. Surely only Chinese companies or those with strong Chinese links would consider importing Chinese wine? The company’s name is Biological Technology- don’t think I’d drink anything made by them.
“Password Reconfirmation Server Notice”. That sounds like an official email but is fake. Scammers send out assorted efforts to try to get people’s passwords. Never click on such emails – read them carefully to see if they make sense and the sender’s email address matches the message. In this case it was sent from donaldo @madeoequipos.com which is not my company therefore it is a fake message.
An email claims to be from PayPal and that my ID has been changed. I now have to verify my account or lose it. Of course, you cannot change your ID in Paypal as that is your identification although you can change your name and other details. The message is from swiccpac.ph which is a Philippine Islands address, not PayPal. It’s just a scammer after my email address and password so he or she can spend on my account. Not going to happen.
Yet another email arrives telling me that my McAfee anti-virus renewal has just been charged to my account. The scammers seem too lazy to actually check up the correct price so they just make one up – I’ve seen prices from $75 to £822 and quotes in other currencies but mostly in dollars. Interestingly the email says that if it wasn’t me who authorised this then I should call a 1-888 number to report it. Presumably this scammer has a scam call centre – I wont be calling.
Rev Sis Simge Pinar wants to donate all of her $9,150,000 to me so I can continue her work of helping the poor. Yeah right! She’s in Istanbul and dying of some odd disease, so she only has weeks to live. What a shame – that’ll be one less evil scammer in the world if it’s true but of course it’s all made-up rubbish. No money and no donation – just lies.
