My internet email service, just like all email services has a filter to try and keep these from coming up into my main email. I puts the obvious ones into a spam folder for me to review later. There are so many that come right through anyway. I do not know how. 

When I do get around to reading through the spam folder to delete everything, that is when things really get scary. I can honestly say, it is getting so much worse. 

Phone calls too, I currently have on my answering machine two messages that I have saved that came while I was out of town. I left them on there just as a reminder to stay diligent. One of them is a US census bureau scam, claiming it is the US government agency calling with a case number, and please call us back....
The other one is really vile! It is someone sounding terrible gruff claiming to be a criminal attorney that is offering to take care of the enormous charges that the IRS has against me for tax evasion. He says that I need to call him back urgently and pay enormous amounts of money to avoid prison... blah, blah, blah. 

Who are these losers?!?

I wouldn't be surprised if Assange's henchmen are behind these personal attacks on you. Simply mark them as spam and then delete

I would not be surprised at all if some of this stuff is coming from an Assange henchmen. I have seen them be capable of much worse than this even. As things for him get worse, as they will, the henchmen will get more desperate with each passing day. All cults eventually crash and burn...

Unbelievable that they would think that people will actually give out the bank account information. Total scammers! I assume these emails can not be traced?? I wonder if any government agencies.. authorities of any kind bother to hunt these people down?

ppl don't give out their banks accounts. They are lead to believe they have been chosen to receive a large sum of money, mostly unclaimed inheritance. In order to claim the money and have it sent to your account, they require an upfront payment to cover transfer costs etc etc. You will be asked to wire the money via Western Union upon which they magically disappear. The scheme is called a "419" and you can find out how it works here:

@Riney thanks for the thread: very important.

I've been recently literally flooded of phishing emails that introduce themselves as being your "Carta Sì" (a kind of card) and asking to "add my data" to "change passwords" to "secure my account" etc etc.

They send you a link that looks 99% like the original site, but if you try to open other links on that site you'd see it's completely False as nothing else opens but the main homepage.

Also: generally paying services don't send you just an email and it's always better to check via phone or else before sending economic and personal data to whoever via email.

In the last month I think I have deleted, blocked and reported at least 10 attempts of stealing my data from "Carta Sì"... Pity that I have NO Carta Sì! LOL!



As the secure service hasn't been activated... blah blah blah... We ask you to insert your data in the above link.
We have a new security service to protect your data...

[WOW! applauses for the new system and the lie! - sarcasm]

They even thank you for spending your time doing what they ask, and they assure you after can normally keep using your account after.

The fraud-email is entitled "(3D Secure Service): registering for the service is mandatory".
So to pressure the person to introduce his/her data without thinking twice:



With certain computers if you click on the link the site initially appears "normal", it looks exactly like the true one, but, if you explore it better, it generally has non working other links because it's just a copy of the original. This may also be a way to immediately recognize attempts of phishing.

In case the scammers have been able enough to recreate a decent copy of the site, I anyway think requests of sensitive economic personal data aren't usually sent just via email (I used to receive also a written communication for whatever important thing when I had a card). One can always also phone the service and/or contact his/her bank to ask for more info to avoid frauds.

Anyway if you open the link with an i-phone or other stuff with high security levels...



It says "This site is suspect of phishing"!

I have also noticed that by clicking on the email addresses that in my case were trying to imitate "Carta Sì", each time a different email address was sending the fraud and they did not look like anything professional (may be auto-generated email addresses?!).

I think it's very important to report all these attempts of phishing to the email service and also to the true service the scammers are trying to imitate, so they can be identified and stopped from trying to stealing money and data to the people.

Isn't this more or less the method they used to steal CIA's chief's data? Persuading somebody to have his/her emails, passwords, etc. Or am I confusing it with something else?
