Yahoo Email Phishing Scam – Account Exceeded Limit.

By | January 20th, 2013|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , |

Account Exceeded Limit A Yahoo email phishing scam is being sent to our in-boxes again.  The email looks like it comes from Yahoo admin and informs you that you need to upgrade your account as you have exceeded your limit of 30GB or you will not be able to send or receive email. This is a phishing scam.   What is a phishing email We have seen many of these on social networks lately - there have been phishing scams on Twitter, Hotmail, Facebook, and many more, and the object of the hackers game is to fool you into giving them your personal information, such as username, password and even worse credit card details. These scams don't always come via Email it can be on instant messages or private messages on various networks. Once you give this information, they have control over your account. How can we tell its an email scam As luck would have it - I knew instantly that this was fake basically because I rarely use this account and never save anything there, I've probably used 30kb not [...]

By | May 20th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

There have been an increasing amount of complaints regarding missing dm's, lost messages, direct messages on Twitter recently and there are likely to be a few more in the next few days. Twitter has deleted some users DM's - Direct Messages. Its okay, its just a twitter bug, they do know about it .... Twitter Support says Bug Alert: Some users are currently experiencing an issue with direct messages disappearing, without the sender or receiver deleting them from their inbox. Some users may experience a delay in DM delivery. A notification may arrive to your email inbox, but the DM won't appear for some time after the email delivery. These are bugs, and our engineers are hard at work to solve these issues. Follow @support for updates! Also while we are talking about Twitter, there is another Phishing Scam going around that says Twitter is going to charge do not click this. Its similar to twitter scams where one t says, Is this picture about you, and Is this blog about you - these are still spreading like viruses after more [...]

Twitter News – Activity Arrives and A Hack Attack

By | August 24th, 2011|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Twitter news... You may have heard that Twitter has launched another change on Twitter.com; I'll keep this brief as you will see for yourself soon enough. Activity  This shows favorites, follows, retweets, and more by people that you follow - this is next to @mentions, which now has your @name and retweets has gone  - this is being rolled out slowly as not everyone has it yet. I'm not sure about the usefulness of this yet, it makes it harder to see your retweets - but at least it is on another page and you have to click to see it.   One thing maybe to remember is that everything you do now, show's up in picture form for everyone to see, well maybe not EVERYTHING :) Some people are loving these new changes in Twitter, but some say its ruining what we once  had, simplicity - I do have to agree.  I wonder what your view is, do you like these changes from the #oldtwitter to the new? In other news...... New Phishing Attack There is another new Phising [...]

Warning! Twitter Scam – Is this blog about you?

By | July 16th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

There is another Phishing scam going around Twitter.  This is similar to the "Is this you in this picture"  and "Is this you in this video" You get a DM asking Is this blog about you with a link - here is the one I revived today. People are saying that when you click the link it takes you to a twitter log in page, it then takes over your account and sends out DM's to your friends from your twitter account. Think before you click! The danger is that these DM's are from friends and you don't think about it when you click as you wonder - ooh am I featured in a blog? If you have clicked on this, you need to change your password immediately and try to warn the people that you have DM'd not to click the link.  I sent a message to the above account to tell this this is happening, as that is the other problem, you don't actually realise right away that it is happening. Update - I've also received the "This gotta be you in [...]

Is this you in this picture ? Twitter Phishing scam!

By | July 9th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

This is an old MSN scam which has now reached Twitter - the MSN scam was  trying to get  your credit card details and any other personal details, so I'm a bit wary of this one on Twitter. Its spreading fast as you can see from these Tweets ..... Its coming through as a DM from one of your friends, which makes you think its real - but its not of course.  When you click it, it Dm's your friends. Don't click If you have then check your approved applications and remove anything dodgy looking -  change your password and do a scan to be on the safe side. I will let you know more, when I find  out more information. In the meantime, better to be safe than sorry and do the above. Hope this helps

Twitter Viagra scam DM spreading fast

By | June 24th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

There is a new Phishing scam or spam DM spreading quickly around Twitter at the moment,  seemingly a direct message that is sent from your friend  says...... (or similar) "I got huge discounts on Viagra, cialis and more, no prescription needed." This is what twitter are saying ........ I didn't click the link myself so I'm not sure where the link takes you, although hopefully Google chrome would have warned me as it is pretty secure. However....... Please don't click it, as it will be DM'ed to many of your followers - and this will keep it alive! I personally, never click any links that are DM'd to me, without knowing about it first.  They are either spam or self promotions, both of which should not be in my DM box. If there is something to say @ me -  If I do get something I am not sure of - I ask the sender if they meant to send it, on this occasion I asked as a joke as why would someone send me something about Viagra :) If you have clicked [...]
