One of my first posts of the year had to do with some scams that I received from my email inbox. I’ve talked about some phishing scams as well as scams promising me millions of dollars and you can read more about those by clickinghere. Now that we’re in the second month of the year, you might be wondering what online scams are circulating around the internet these days.
That is exactly what I’m going to talk about and show you some of the scams that I’ve received this month. Most of them are similar to other email scams I’ve talked about in the past, but they are still important to talk about because I don’t want anyone to become a victim of them. Without further ado, lets’ get right to it.
I’ve been talking a lot about phishing emails lately. The reason I’ve done that is because I don’t want people to become a victim of them as it’s so easy to do. I recently talked about a few phishing emails that I received, two of which were PayPal phishing emails and one of them supposedly from Apple.
I took a look at the red flags that these emails have as well as what could happen if you click the links inside of those emails. The first PayPal phishing scam in which I clicked the link inside of it, started to take me to what would’ve been a phishing website, but I got a red screen pop up instead warning me that the site was more than likely a phishing attempt and is very dangerous. You can read all about that by clickinghere.
With all the phishing emails I’ve received lately as well as countless other people receiving them in their email inboxes, the question that might be asked is can you stop phishing emails? Well I’m going to take a closer look at that and talk about the best defense against them. I’ll also show a couple of other phishing email scams that I received.
There are so many scams going around in our world today and it almost makes you not want to do anything, but we know that just isn’t an option. It can be hard sometimes to tell what is really legitimate and what isn’t. That’s why I want people to be aware of the latest bank scams that are going around out there.
This is very important because there are scammers out there sending texts and emails claiming to be from people’s institutions trying to make them think that something serious has happened to their account or that it has been frozen and that they need to give out certain information in order to verify that it’s them and to reactivate the account. I will talk about the truth of how these scams are trying to get your valuable banking account information and how banks will never ask for that if they are truly contacting you. Plus I’ll share some information about how some people in a particular state in the US, were receiving these type of scams.
I’ve been talking about phishing email scams that are going around these days, in particular, PayPal phishing scams that I’ve been receiving and I’ve been getting a lot of them lately. In my latestarticle, I talked about the two best ways to protect yourself from phishing scams and I’ll reiterate those here. Netflix Phishing emails are on the increase as well.
In fact, I heard on a popular radio show this morning about one in particular that’s going around and one of the people on the radio show even received that particular Netflix scam. I received that scam recently myself and that’s exactly what we’re going to take a look at today.
I’m back with another look at phishing emails. I want to take a look at how PayPal phishing emails are getting more sophisticated and that may be true for phishing emails in general. This is in regard to a particular phishing email I received not too long ago.
If you’ve read some of my previous posts regarding phishing emails, such as the one regarding anApple phishing email, you’ll have read some of the specifics of how to spot it being a fake email and not become a victim of these type of scams. I will also talk about those again here because I want everyone to have the information needed to not fall victim to one of these types of emails.
