New Twist on Old Email Scam
Beware of a new twist on an old scam when it comes to your e-mail.
According to the federal trade commission, scammers, posing as well-known tech companies, are e-mailing a phony invoice showing that you’ve recently bought music or apps from them.
The e-mail tells you to click on a link if you did not authorize the purchase.
Stop right there.. do not click on the link.
And be suspicious of any e-mail that asks you for your username, password, or other personal data.
