The latest phishing scam preys on your curiosity.
The potential victim receives an email from “cara@ChristianMingle” which of course is a spoofed email address. The email uses your first name in the email, to make you think it’s legit. They usually start out with “Firstname, Ready to meet your newest match from ChristianMingle?”. They then go on to state something similar to: “meishac is 21 and lives in Hollywood, FL, USA. Want to know more or see meishas photos? Click here!”.
This is a TRAP. DO NOT click on any of these links. At the very least you will lose time, but most times, worse things happen, such as:
– Your computer will become infected with malware
– Your identity will be stolen
– Your bank account will be emptied.
DO NOT click on links in spam or phishing emails that make you curious! Phishing scams rely on your curiosity to get you to click!
