Attention: Email Scam, Internet Fraud


There is a wave of bogus emails circulating requesting recipients to update their bank details, or to reply with your personal information to receive a monetary return such as an IRD rebate, etc.

Remember, NEVER send your personal details to anyone you don’t personally know. If you have any doubt - delete! Don’t even open the email up, that also can set a virus working within your computer.

It is not difficult to learn how to recognise current Internet scams that arrive via email. Included below are descriptions of the most common types of email driven scams as well as some general indicators that should help you recognize scam emails.

Prize notifications - you are told you have won a prize in a lottery you haven't entered. But, you have to pay money to the operators before they will release the money.

Get rich quick schemes - offering opportunities to earn thousands of dollars a week, but your earnings may be dependent on selling the scheme to others.

Nigerian fee scam - this age-old scam offers you a percentage of millions of dollars in exchange for letting the sender use your bank account to transfer the funds out of where they are currently held. The Nigerian letter has many variations.

And the newest fee scam - new versions of the Nigerian scam feature authors ranging from deposed African leaders to Afghan refugees to an alleged U.S. commando

They may claim that political climate or legal issues preclude them from accessing funds in a foreign bank account.

They may claim that your last name is the same as that of the deceased person who owned the account and suggest that you act as the Next of Kin of this person in order to gain access to the funds.

They may claim that a rich merchant, who has a terminal illness, needs your help to distribute his or her wealth to charity.

Internet auction scams - where buyers use stolen credit card numbers to buy high price items. Sellers may also try selling a lot of items at once then take the money and run.

Phishing - Phishing attacks use 'spoofed' e-mails and fraudulent websites designed to fool recipients into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames and passwords, social security numbers, etc. By hijacking the trusted brands of well-known banks, online retailers and credit card companies, phishers are able to convince up to 5% of recipients to respond to them.

In general, be wary of unsolicited emails that:

• Promise you money, jobs or prizes
• Ask for donations
• Propose lucrative business deals
• Ask you to provide sensitive personal information
• Ask you to follow a link to a website and log on to an account.

By taking the time to educate yourself about these common types of scam, and/or by sharing this information with others, you can make a valuable contribution to the war against Internet fraud.

What should you do with scam mail ?

Immediately delete such email.
Never open any attachment from suspicious messages.
Don't reply. A reply only serves to confirm that your email address is active and ready for further "offers".

Notify the spammers Internet Service Provider (ISP). If spamming is against the ISPs policy for email account holders, the ISP may sanction the sender.

We will publish the latest info about such scam emails in our new articles.
