Scammers are keeping busy, sending all sorts of attempts to get to your personal info, which they can then proceed to abuse. This week ESET Ireland received a good deal of this particular sort of spam email. As people conditioned to believe the credibility of “brand names”, adding “Google”, “Gmail” and “Microsoft Windows” to an otherwise a very common scam, guarantees the scammers a few additional victims. And stamping “Approved” as watermark is, in the scammers’ opinion, guaranteed to seal the deal.
