ALERT: FTC Scam Rings True
There is a new CyberScam out this week, that has lazy CyberCriminals raking in cash!
I say lazy, because the CyberCriminals are taken an actual past scam that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission has resolved & is now refunding money on. CyberCriminals take these real FTC cases, and create a phishing scam out of them.
CyberCriminals are sending out phishing emails from an official-sounding organization that promises you a refund for a specific amount.
Be very careful!
Never click on any links, or open any attachments you did not ask for. DELETE the email immediately.
If you really are expecting an FTC refund, go to the FTC.gov website yourself, using your own shortcut, or by typing the address in your browser.
