If you receive an email in your inbox saying “you have earned $__” from a website you do not recognize, it is not a good idea to go to the website. Even if the email says someone you know has signed you up for it, or has referred you to their site. An email has been circulating from “Fanbox” which says you’ve made some money, but need to go to the website to sign up.
On the website, it will take your email address, password, and cell phone number in order to spam you continuously and then spam all of your contacts. It will use the phone number you provided to send you texts that may or may not COST YOU to receive. Your phone number and email address may even get more spam after “Fanbox” sells your information to other people.
Once the spamming has started, it is almost impossible to stop. Even though there is a “stop these emails” link on the bottom of the email, clicking that will only verify that the email is active, and the spam will continue.
