Although lacking in graphics, the content of this email is very good quality. They even go so far as to include a valid telephone number and email address for Companies House. As usual though, it is the attachment that is the threat. Do NOT open it! (click thumbnail image to see screenshot of the email)
For starters I have never played the game (Buy Diablo 3 from Amazon if you’re interested!) and hence have no online account but if you are somebody who does play it, this could easily suck you in! No attachment on the email which is good, but as usual do not click through on the link […]
Much more obvious this is not genuine compared to the Fedex fake previously as it is lacking in graphics and quality. As usual they want you to open and run the attachment – do NOT do that – ignore and delete the email. (click on this thumbnail image to see a screenshot of the email)
Looks like it may have come from Fedex given the logos, but no, this is a scam and specifically they want you to open and run the attachment – do NOT do that – ignore and delete the email. (click on this thumbnail image to see a screenshot of the email)
This email has a built-in form that the scammer wants you to complete and submit. Despite what you see, it has NOT come from Barclays – delete it, ignore it and do nothing more with it. (click on this thumbnail image to see a screenshot of the full length email)
