Warning! AA Life Insurance

Warning! Fake AA Life Insurance Scam eMailYet another attempt to scam money out of people going the rounds, this time purporting to be from the AA Life Insurance team with an Invoice for £394.87 and the invoice is available to download from, surprise, surprise, NOT the AA, but some site called nth-gen{dot}co{dot]uk. The file is apparently a ZIP file, which if downloaded and opened will no doubt infect your computer with malware or worse still, encrypt your files and data which you then have to pay some criminal to hopefully, unlock...

Warning! Cyber Fraud Attempt

Warning! Fake CyberFraud eMail  ThreatJust received an email threatening me with exposure as this asshole has "infected my OS with a virus", also he has a porn video of me sent to a non-personal email address.

All lies, simply an attempt to con people into sending money off to avoid exposure! What a pathetic attempt to scare people into parting with money on false pretences. If you get one of these, report it to the police, ignore it and delete it, do not respond and never send money to such a obvious attempt to defraud you.

Warning! Fake Quill Invoices

Warning! Fake Quill Credit Card Invoice EmailsBe aware that there are fake emails from Quill.com whomever they are, floating around.

Dear Customer,

Your most recent Credit Card Purchase Receipt from Quill is now ready to
view online.

The spoofed links in the email do not point to Quill's website, nor are they directed to a PDF as stated, they point to a encoded url which is probably going to be a self-running php file that infects your computer with malware or worse, encrypting your files with one of the many Crypto-scams...

Warning! Starofservice 2

Warning! Further spamming from StarOfService Yet more spam from this StarOfService website! I don't understand what their game is but they love to send out unsolicited spam emails on an almost daily basis yet looking at their website, they do seem to be a genuine firm. BUT! Their harvesting of personal email address to add to their dubious business mailings is quite illegal here in the UK and a total waste of time and bandwidth.

They do not, and never have had my permission to use, store or disclose my email address yet, being French...

I don't know if this is a bogus site or if it has been infected/hacked, but regardless, never click a link...
