THE TELLTALE SIGNS!
These email scams will use the same logo and branding as these big companies. The email you receive will usually ask you to “validate” or “confirm” your personal details by clicking on a link or opening an attachment.
For example, one client received an email from “PayPal” with a receipt from an Uber ride she did not make, and to “check account activity” by clicking the link. If you click the link, there are un-expected pop-ups on your computer or mobile device asking for certain software to run.
So how do you detect a scam email?
If you look at the “From:” email address, it tries to imitate “Apple”, but the end of the email says “@modifmoto.business”
That’s not Apple!
Dear: [email address] of recipient
Companies like Apple and PayPal will always address the email to you in your Full Name
Poor english and gramma!
“You receipt invoice Billing update’s to re-active continue on February”
“If you not update within 24 hours.”
If you’re unsure about your account activity, it is best to open your internet browser, and visit the site directly (not via the email).
Please forward this scam alert to friends and family and help them stay safe online!
