In the past 24 hours, a large number of fake emails arriving in Baltimore City mail box/email accounts have been confirmed to be falsely claiming to be from Verizon. This has been a scam that has been going on for much of the month of May 2012. I have also confirmed that these messages have been appearing in the West Chester PA area as well. These emails would appear to be “Phishing Scams”, but they are link trying to take you to web pages that quietly exploit your workstation.
IF YOU RECEIVE A EMAIL MESSAGE LIKE THIS, PLEASE DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY & REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE. NEVER EVER OPEN AN UNSOLICTED EMAIL MESSAGE. YOU ARE ONLY RISKING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND THE DIGITAL LIFE OF YOUR PC.
