Caution! Bogus E-Mail Informative - Bogus E-Mail - Not From American Home Shield

Review by moneybags on 2007-09-07
MOBILE, AL -- I opened my e-mail account a few minutes ago and found an e-mail from Zoomerang who is supposedly doing a survey for American Home Shield. This e-mail account is the one I use for my business (Realtor) and has never been sent to AHS. In exchange for taking the "survey" (yeah, right!) I will be entered in a drawing for $500.

So I called AHS. This is totally BOGUS! Do not open! DELETE!

I wish the spineless fools in Washington would deal with the spam problem and get their heads out of their butt's.

Alley, that email you received wasn't from any legit company. It was someone phishing and hoping those who have a Wachovia account will click the link and help them gather personal information. Thanks for the notice BTW, moneybags.

Alley, you should sever your internet connection IMMEDIATELY and for good!

Phishing is more and more common these days. There are a few things to keep in mind: 1. The return address of the email is meaningless. This can be spoofed to say anything you want it to say. 2. Banks/credit card companies, etc. will NEVER ask you for your account name/password, etc. via email and 3. If you get an email with a link in it, and you're viewing the email in Internet Explorer, one think you can do is mouse over the link. Down in the lower left hand corner of the browser frame it will tell you where the link *really* goes, which is quite often not to the web site it claims to go to. Just an FYI.
