A new scam to look out for!

  SparkyJack 19:18 02 Sep 2014

In my spam box( yahoo on the ball!) A thank you from a'Clara Rocchi' for an order for £151.xx payment to be collected by wire transfer'

There is a attachment.

As nothing has been ordered and to collect my bank detail would have to be known,that isnt going to happen.

I don't bank on line.

So those of you who do 'warch out for this one, if it does come your way, check your bank.

..so don't fall for the old scams - you be careful out there ;)

As Woolwell says, this one has been around for a long time. It obviously works from time to time, or it wouldn't be repeatedly sent out.

As always with these things, if you know you didn't order anything, or enter the lottery, or if whatever it is that's in the message title looks unfamiliar,delete them straight away.

Looks like Yahoo are to the mark then.

As always, if you didn't enter/order you can't win/get a delivery.

A variation on this one

A/telephone call from a chum

'Hey what's this all about?

He too has got one of these but this time 'it came from me. Itold him to delete it.

If her any one you know had gone further what would be the end result?
