We're aware of many scams, but here's a new one! This came into my Email inbox.
Wouldn't work here, we don't pay for a license.
I had a similar one a couple of months ago along but it didn't offer me a free license, just told me my regular payment had been declined and to "click here" to make the missing payment ! At the same time I also had one purporting to come from Virgin Media with the same message (missed payment). Although I was certain that both were scams a quick check of my bank account confirmed all direct debits were up to date. So just forwarded both emails to the relevant department at both organisations and then deleted them from my inbox.
There are almost always spelling mistakes, inappropriate use of upper case letters and punctuation/grammar mistakes in scam emails, if you look hard enough.
I’m a bit pedantic with this stuff.
I found four anomalies without trying, not counting the use of ‘GBP’.
PS. I don’t Apply these rules to Me.
We don't either!
Yep the one that stood out for me in the above scam message was "is" instead of "has" in the second sentence !
I keep getting emails asking for my bank account details so I don't lose online banking. Two problems with that
1) I don't have an account with the bank the email is supposedly from.
2) I don't do online banking and never have.
