Not really a help question, but a beware one.....
« on: Apr 17, 19, 11:13 AM »
I get all sorts of email scammers, and have just received a new one, and even I can spot crappy spelling on badly typed scam emails.
Just for fun whilst I drink my mug of coffee, and went to the web site to fill in all my details and card numbers............but fell foul of the card number, because it showed up as wrong.
I also noticed that none of the buttons worked, like 'Contact us'......'cookies'......'Home' etc.
Anyway, my bank pays the TV licence on the 1st of every month, (not the 15th as stated) and has done so, because I check that any DD payments have gone through at that time.
Plus my actual payment is 12.83/month, so they would be missing out on 0.83 if I did fall for it, and apart from that, I would be addressed by my name, and not 'dear customer'........ :o ;D

Anyone else had one of the scammer emails?

My ma-in-law would've fallen for that.

There's a similar one, saying that you're owed a refund.

I'll pass it round.  :hat3:

Cheers Kat, as it is a new one on me.
Just looking at the email instantly made me suspicious, because I don't believe any emails like this before checking.
Anyway, I always check monthly DD's have been paid anyway.... :)
It made a change from the usual emails of 'I have eleventy billion $$$$$$$$ waiting for you, and just supply your details to, blah, blah, blah.
The last one didn't even have contact details to send them all my info......so couldn't reply.... :)

Oh, if it mentions anything "bank", I bin it, without even bothering to read it. Come to that, I do that with an awful lot of other mails, too. Thankfully, my ISP seems to have decent Spam filters.

She was here, again, today. Totally naked and wobbling around, like they do...

Then, I woke up and she WAS here, but she was clothed.  :'(
