Suspicious Emails “Money Laundry” Or “Phishing”?
Recently, I’ve been receiving lots of suspected emails telling about wining a million dollar prize or have been selected for certain job offer. It is very annoying to receive such an emails in a periodic term even though I’ve tried to filter them but unfortunately they come from different source. Do they send them just in random way based on a stolen database could be found somewhere online.
would that mean that my identity has been stolen? Credit Card Number, Social Security Number/National ID number, and DOB? I don’t know but it is scary a bit. Here it comes the importance of the information security and its awareness toward a lot of people join this wide network without reserving any attention to what exactly you are going through.
Have you ever tried to search your name online through Google and see if there any matches for you?
Below is the email that I’ve received recently
