SCAM: These scams tend to be very well-crafted. However, a simple mouse-over of any link in these emails reveals that they do not point to the website they claim to represent. [View the lower left corner of each graphic.] The scammers are quite clever. Their bogus bills generally come out just ahead of the real Verizon and AT&T billing cycle. These types of emails typically point to fake websites that are designed to look like your cell phone website. To be honest, we’re not quite sure what their “game” is. e.g. Are they just looking to infect your computer, steal your credentials to your cell phone account hoping that you use the same login information at a bank or credit card? ….we’re not sure. Just delete.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Besides looking at the link revealed in the lower left corner of all of these scams by a mouse-over, notice that all of these emails lack any personal information that identifies the recipient. Some list “your account number ending in 001” or some other lame number.
CAUTION: We do not advise visiting the links revealed in these scam emails because it is possible that some of these websites might cause a computer infection.
