Email Scammers Are Getting Desperate

Submitted by Mike on Sat, 05/02/2020 - 22:01

 Since email scammers have been trying to extort people through email, they have had to come up with new ideas on how to get email through the filters that stop the email coming through in the first place.  And the latest trick is using non-English characters. The scammers always try the same old tactics using password that were hacked from myspace over a decade ago. I will post an example of one of these ridiculous emails below. Hopefully you found this article while searching for information on these emails and you have avoided a scam.

Hello!
