Spam Email "Can I trust you"!

Post  rufuskins on Sat 30 Aug 2014, 6:55 pm

I have received an e mail this afternoon from someone with an Arabic or similar name which merely contained the above four words. I believe it is a precursor to a scam/spam situation. Anyone else received this? Finally a pointless question - "how do they get your email address"?

Hi Alec, I've had loads of spam messages in the last month or so and they get added to my blocked
e-mail list and then I delete them.
I even get mail in my main inbox from some banks that I know are not mine asking me to log in via
the link to re-activate the account, of course they get deleted.
I even get some apparently coming from E-Bay where I do have an account saying I need to
re-activate it via the link, a simple check using my normal log in shortcut shows that the sender are
trying to find out my account details and so the spam gets added to the list as well.
The simple answer to all this is that be very careful about e-mails that do not come into your Bank
Account message box once you log into it, or say Dear Member instead of your name as it is Spam
and should be deleted.

I have any number of spam emails, many offering me investment opportunities. Not had too many bank related ones recently. But now get numerous ones about undelivered FedEx parcels! They all get diverted into the spam area, where they stay for about 30 days and then disappear of their own accord. Also get a number about unpaid toll tickets!

I just thought I'd highlight this latest one - see topic title - that does get a mention on-line!

Aren't I lucky to be so popular!

Alec,
As soon as I type in Email Can I Trust You in to Google it brings up a lot of searches. Just ignore and delete. I get plenty of Spam emails myself.

Never open an email unless you know the sender

That's what I do.
