Anyone else getting loads of scam emails

Postby UPTHEPORT » April 8th, 2020, 11:43 am

Really have been picking up the past few days

Had TV licence payment declined

Had Netflix payment declined

Action required on my Halifax account (funny that as I don't use Halifax :evil:)

These are just a few

Be careful out there everyone

Good Morning

I read somewhere that these scammers deal in e-mail lists generated from reputable companies selling on details of people who respond to free offers and suchlike. It’s a big “black market “ worldwide.
Anything “free” on the internet is aimed at the weaker folk in society and is the bait for bigger things.

I had one yesterday saying they'd hacked my webcam. They are asking for $1900 (in bitcoins) otherwise all my contacts will be sent a video of me turning Japanese so to speak while watching porn.

I apologise in advance to all my contacts.
