You Are the Winner, Were You a Victim of Fraud?
Hey my friends,
This gonna be just a quick post about a No.1 fraud that is flooding the people’s email inbox and spam filters are not detecting that, so the msg doesn’t go automatically to the spam folder of your email inbox.
Anyway, be careful and don’t do any action regarding the respond to this fraudulent email. I received this winning notice this morning, and was wondering what kind of scam is that, because I know they are hackers that are trying to hack your bank account. And in many cases they do.
So do not even reply to this email or click on any link that is attached, you will loose your money like many did.
The email message stated something like: “Congratulations, We are proud to inform you that your Email Address has been Awarded Five Hundred Great British Pounds (500,000.00 GBP) in the 2015 BBC UK Email Award program which was organized by BBC COMPANY”
And than they would ask to provide them with your personal details such as your name, bank account number, basically all your details except mobile phone number. All the details you are meant to send to this email address – email@example.com or call +448719746077. They will probably act as solid and trustworthy, but it’s hundred percent fraud.
The name figuring in the fraud message is Dr Jerry Martins, payment officer of BBC company payment department of United Kingdom.
Also, I received this announcement from this name and email, which sounds to Indian – Sanchari Sinha <Sanchari.Sinha@weizmann.ac.il>
And Ticket Winning Number (UK/0147X4/74),
Reference Number 9-11-13-19-37-3-4,
Serial Number. 7501-07
When I checked online for some more information concerning this message, I found out that in many cases these hackers managed to steal the money from the people’s accounts. So I encourage you, don’t trust these type of msgs.
