Scam emails

[ Edited ]

I have recieved an email which looks very much like a genuine email from Telstra using the Its how we connect logo.

It starts with "

Dear_Valued Member,


our billing system was unable to process your last payment...."

It contains a link to http://www.funactivities4kids.in/zoom/accountNum=10090856amp/billNum=0845066288amp/login.php indicating a scam.

 

Is it possible to stop these types of scams at the ISP server?

Fake Fake Fake, get rid of it - And certainly don't open it, you never know whats hiding in it, most important.

Re: Scam email - YOUR EMAIL BILL

It would be nice if it could be automatically stopped, I agree.

 

I haven't had one in a while, but there was a period when I was getting at least 2 a month, and ALWAYS on the day my monthly period was switching over.....

Make sure you delete it completly from your computer. There's a whole lot of variations of these things going around at the moment. Just so annoying.

Yes Marnie, that's another of the scammers text tools. Don't open the links in the message and delete immediately.
