Email Scams - due invoices and competition winners
Has anyone else noticed the huge amount of email scams doing the rounds lately?
The last few months has been hectic with scam emails. The first bunch of emails I got were for invoices that were apparently due. The title would just say that there was an invoice attached and the invoice number.
Thankfully I never opened any of these because the first day I got one I actually got 4, all looking very similar and all from email addresses I didn't recognize. So yeah I don't get that many invoices and I know all the payments that are upcoming. It was immediately suspicious to me so I deleted them all without opening and all the following emails that came like that.
This one didn't catch me, but I used to work in accounts for a large company and I received loads of invoices daily. If it had happened to me then I would have probably opened them all before I realized there was a problem.
I just wonder what that scam was about, have you come across it and do you know what happens if you open those mails?
Then the most recent one is that I have suddenly won loads and loads of competitions, the emails are flying. The thing is that I don't enter competitions, so I can't win... so these have also seen the bin!
