A scam alert
Hi there! It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to my scam alert.
A scam alert
Those emails asking you to login and verify your username and password that appears to be coming from your bank or insurance company.
If the email in question that you have received seems to be from a bank or insurance company that you do not do business with then you are okay. Just delete it and move on.
On the other hand if the email in question is from a bank or insurance company that you do business with; then by all means you can read it but my advice would be to also delete it.
No bank or insurance company would ever send you this type of email.
Not sure? Then just visit your bank.
Ask them to verify that they never sent you such an email.
You could also call to verify as well.
Some of these types of emails may also go as far as to ask you to provide such details as your date of birth and account number.
Just delete this email and move on.
What would happen if you were to respond?
The simple answer would be trouble, lots of trouble, and now you have given a scammer out there carte blanche to hack into either your bank account and/or your very own computer system.
That’s it from me for this week.
