Watch out for this Google docs phishing email

google docs phishing email

If you have received this “Google docs” phishing email in your inbox – DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINK.

This is another phishing attempt.

Google Docs is a great online resource allowing you to create, store and share documents, spreadsheets and other useful things. The problem is that if you click on the link in the email it goes to what you might think is a selling website.

Where does it take you?

As you can see – nothing to do with the “sender” – it may not even be a pathetic attempt to show you some fitness equipment. No, I think its a nasty document with embedded programming that can harm your pc.

Here is what to look for:

They also used a standard sales@ attempt to get through filters, and frankly it worked. But you would expect most businesses to have a sales@ email address.

Remember, share this or tell your friends. DO NOT CLICK ANY LINK.

Stay safe.

Another nasty Amazon scam to watch out for

amazon phishing emailNasty Phishing email. If you get this one in your email, DO NOT CLICK ANY LINK.

Just saw this one and thought I would let you know.

It’s well designed and may fool a lot of folks. The only obvious mistake is the poor English and incorrect email address.

It will likely cripple your machine if you click a link.

The email address it was sent to is incorrect, I have highlighted it.

Delete immediately. Stay safe.

“Comcast” Phishing email

comcast phishing emailQuick notification of another scam in the form of a phishing email that suggests you have paid an American cable company with your credit card.

The links are all to a .ru domain (Russian) and go to a .php file, which could seriously harm your computer at the very least.

Don’t click anything and don’t forward it!

If you have a cable subscription from Comcast (which I doubt you do if you’re in the UK) then go to their main website and to your account etc.

The proper website is: https://www.xfinity.com/

Stay safe folks.
