Spam scam - an old foe returns

CoNet Administrator

It's been a while since spammers hawked "meds" in spam. But recently, we got one. The amazing thing is that it's the same as they ever were.

" Save Up to 80% on Meds. Shop Now." screams the heading from the helpful Vonda Sawyer who uses the e-mail address sonnnie@botwarehouse.com.

The name is almost certainly made up and the e-mail address doesn't inspire confidence.

Nor does the mail nor the web addresses within it (Don't click them. We, and you, have no idea what will happen if you do).

Ho hum. Here we go again. First, there's the risk of drive-by downloads of malware to your computer: this is an omnipresent danger with links in mail from people you don't know.

Secondly, there is the risk of credit card fraud: giving your payment information to anyone you don't know or can't verify is always a risk.

Third, even if you buy the product, you cannot tell if its real, fake, if it's effective or hamful.

While there may be a process by which the advertiser can get and release drugs without a prescription, this does not mean it's legal for you to import it into your country. Many drugs that are legal, even over the counter in one country can land you in jail in another.

Simple solution: set your email filters to automatically delete any mail containing relevant key words - and you can see, from this example.
