Halifax Online Banking – IMPORTANT MESSAGE 2

A variation on the bank scam theme here.  This scammer is pretending that you have phoned your bank.  The scammer hopes you will panic into clicking the link.  The link takes you to mail.ime.co.th/……..  The scammer has hacked into a legitimate site to upload their scam. NEVER click on a link in a bank email. ...

Collect Your Parcel From Our Dispatch Unit!!! 4

How unusual – an advance fee fraud.  Advance fee – because it asks you to pay money.  Fraud – because it is!  Are you really expecting a Mastercard worth £200k?  Of course you aren’t.  Since when was it any of DHL’s business to know what is in the parcels they deliver? Just delete the email ...

Contact 1

What a load of rubbish.  Ungrammatical, poorly written and repetitive.  This scammer claims to offer loans – yet the only contact details given are an msn email address.  No accreditations, no website, no address – nothing.  Not surprising really – this scammer doesn’t want to lend you money, he or she wants to take money ...

Our Ref: FGN /SNT/STB 3

Yet another scammer who seems to think that being bullying and rude is a good way to make me believe their scam. I’m told that “Such an illegal act like these have to stop” – if I want to get my hands on the money they say is mine. There is no money.  This is ...

I smell a phish.  Does this email make any sense?  No, it doesn’t.  It’s just a load of old gobbledegook – written by a scammer who doesn’t even know what he/she thinks he or she is talking about. There is no money.  There is a scammer waiting to take money from you by charging you ...

Re: Hello

Yvonne Wilcocks has problem, poor love.  Her entire family died in a plane crash and she is – yes you guessed it – rich and dying.  Oh yes – and she’s a SCAMMER. Ignore the email.  She’s being totally disrespectful to the families of the real victims of the disaster.  AND – she wants to ...

Your Account Update

Another obvious bank scam email.  Where does that link take you?  http://capital-security.us/ – NOT the address of the Bank of America website. NEVER click on a link in a bank email – even if it does appear to have come from your own bank.  ALWAYS enter the address of the bank directly into your browser. ...

PayPal Notification of Limited Account Access 4

Another fake Paypal notice.  How do I know it’s a fake? 1)  Look at the email address it claims to have come from.  “service@alert.paypa.co.uk”.  Read that carefully – it doesn’t say paypal. 2) If you click on the link in the body of the text it takes you to “http://mail.ime.co.th/paypal……..”  NOT the address of the ...
