New notice to Appear in Court

Ooh look, I have to appear in court.  No mention of which court, or why. NEVER open a .zip attachment unless you are 100% certain that you are expecting someone to send you a file in that format.  They almost invariably contain a trojan or other malware. Just delete this. Dear <My name>, You have ...

We need your help!
It seems PayPal need my help.  Or do they? ALL real emails from Paypal include your full, registered name.  This one doesn’t even try to use my name. If you click on the link it takes you to https://www.int-webservices.com/webapps/3b4cc/websrc That definitely isn’t the PayPal website address.  Once there, of course, they want your username and ...

Support Help Desk.
Be ware of this scammer who wants your email username and password.  The email claims to come from “Support Help Desk”.  Which help desk?  Whose support? Ever curious, my friend Roger the Rabbit opened the attached .pdf file and followed the link.  (Don’t do this at home guys, just delete the email.) My Rabbit friend ...

HELLO GOOD FRIEND REPLY BACK

It never ceases to amaze me how much spare money there is floating around in the Bank of Nigeria.  The country must be mega rich.  It’s inhabitants must all be millionaires. Or maybe not. Perhaps this idiot is just another scammer who, for some obscure reason, thinks that telling me he has money in Nigeria ...

This scammer is trying to get your credit card information.  I don’t even have an account with BT! If you follow any of the links in the email you will see that you aren’t taken to the BT website – look in the address bar at the top of your web browser. For the sake ...

Re:HELLO DEAR FRIEND…..

I hope that most people are aware that this sort of nonsense is always a scam.  “Reputable” bankers don’t contact random people via email and offer to send them millions of dollars.  It doesn’t happen. I’ll guarantee that if you answered “MrAgyare” would start asking you to send him money. Dear Friend, I have been ...

Today I received this ridiculous email.  Why on earth would I pay $450 for a domain name?  Typical prices for new domain names range from 88c to around $35.  This domain has no content and no ranking in Google. I very sweetly offered to send this joker a list of the domain names that I ...

Good Day

Obviously the Vic Chairman of one of the world’s major banks would send you a random email with the subject “Good Day” (heavy sarcasm there).  I imagine he has sent quite a few if his client had the “same last name” as I do.  I have one of the UK’s most common surnames – there ...

error-warning-alert-critical
A friend rang me today.  As you can see from the attached screenshot she had a pop up in Firefox warning her of a critical error.  The website she’d been taken to had a female voice warning her that her computer was infected and she should phone an 0800 number. I did a whois search ...

Do You Take Card?

I am being sent this bit of spam repeatedly to non other than an email address associated with this website! Finally, I went to their website.  It claims to be “Card Machines UK”.  The domain name is best described as gobbledegook. It has a fake TRUSTe logo on it and a fake MacAfee Site Advisor ...
