Scam Of The Week: Lowlife Scum Exploits Recent Orlando Tragedy


Lowlife internet scum is trying to benefit from the Orlando shootings. They are now sending out phishing campaigns that try to trick you into clicking on a variety of links about blood drives, charitable donations, “inside” information or “exclusive” videos. Don’t let them shock you into clicking on anything, or open possibly dangerous attachments you did not ask for!

Anything you receive about the Orlando shootings, be very suspicious. With this topic, think three times before you click. It is very possible that it is a scam, even though it might look legit or was forwarded to you by a friend — be especially careful when it seems to come from someone you know through email, a text or social media postings because their account may be hacked.

In case you want to donate to charity, go to your usual charity by typing their name in the address bar of your browser and do not click on a link in any email. Remember, these precautions are just as important at the house as in the office, and tell your family.
