Email Scams Issues

posted 1-2-2010 @ 12:01 PM www


Had one this morning claiming to be from the tax office saying I had a refund, click link to claim blah blah blah


SCAM

spelling mistakes, 'dear customer' and use of ! and 's' in 'feedbacks' is a dead giveaway...beside the fact I did my tax last July!

Just found mine too there Abracadabra. Don't know why, I looked at their page & it says they do not rent, share etc any personal info (although I don't know why my name is there in the first place). I have emailed them asking them to remove my details, but don't have my fingers crossed!

Son got this from friend who works in the government


A friend got a call last night from an individual identifying himself as an Telstra Service technician who was conducting a test on our
Telephone lines.
He stated that to complete the test I should touch nine(9),zero ( 0), hash (#) and then hang up.
Luckily, I was suspicious and refused. Upon contacting the telephone company, I was informed that by pushing 90#, you give the
Requesting individual full access to your telephone line, which allows
Them to place long distance telephone calls billed to your home phone number.
I was further informed that this scam has been originating from many of the local gaols/prisons.
DO NOT press 90# for ANYONE. PLEASE pass this on to your friends.
If you have mailing lists and/or newsletters from organizations you are connected with, I encourage you to pass this on

Virus/Scam

I got an email today
Subject: Facebook - Password request change/Update request. (or anything similar)

If you get an email, allegedly from Facebook, and you know you haven't requested any changes, DO NOT OPEN IT.

It contains the Bredolab Trojan Virus.

I don't use Facebook that often, so I knew it was dodgey as soon as I saw it and deleted it. My Norton's picked it up.
Just wanted to warn others.

EDIT: Just checked my Norton's list again and it was also attached to a 'DHL' email.

Am checking emails & just opened another scam from a site I get emails twice daily .

Please be aware that numerous members are receiving these Spam replies to their posts, or a version of.

""Yup, I have that, I ended up being going to submit a cost-free supply for it, but I noticed your desired post very first, excellent timing! I set up a small number images and my location up on this site
http://myfreecyclegroups.com/resul"" etc etc

They are always from different addresses and never members, so we can't actually block/ban them.

If you receive a reply that looks like this, DO NOT open the link, mark the email as Spam, and then delete. Also let us know by emailing us at the address below.
It has been reported to Yahoo as it seems Yahoo sites are being hacked, but we haven't received a reply yet.

We will keep you posted.
