How bad can it get?
Well, unfortunately the misdirection of the idiots that make some sort of living trying to pirate your internet system is only out-shadowed by the depth and complexity of the tricks they use.
Has the email below shown up in your inbox..........yet?
Odds on, if you haven't seen it yet, you will.
This one almost got me.
I was real close to clicking on the update to see if I had an issue.
My mailbox is always perilously close to being full. I get a 1000 emails a day. It's part of my job. I don't delete a lot of them for 2 reasons:
1. I rarely have time to sufficiently audit my email to see what is important and what is spam so, at times, my inbox can get pretty unmanageable.
2. Many of the emails I receive have ideas, questions, commentary and discussions that I will use in future blogs and articles.
So why didn't I?
Call it professional intuition or dumb luck but my eyes caught the address from where the email came from:
I'm sure Marcia is a great woman (I am being facetious) but she has absolutely no legitimate reason to be policing the size of my email inbox nor does she work for Outlook Customer Care.
This is how you know this is a Phishing Scam.
The URL does not lead to a legitimate Outlook site or service.
Please be careful !!
Emails should only come from sources you would expect them from.
If an email looks suspicious, it normally is.
Always look at the entire email before following any instructions.
If you found today’s blog helpful, interesting, or even funny, I bet your friends would too.
It's easy to tell them about it.
Forward it on to them or just email them my blog link at www.survive55.com.
