Phishing For Tweets

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Andrew Realty Serfvices

My latest scam alert is a fake email supposedly from Twitter letting you know that you have an unreadable message.

 

Twitter Phishing Scam

 

Don't be fooled by the From address - this email isn't from Twitter.  If you take a look at the link, you can see that it's not going to Twitter either.  Click on it and you'll be taken to a site that looks like Twitter but it's only purpose is to convince you to put in your Twitter username and password so the bad guys can steal your account.  Let the bad guy's hook go empty - don't fall for this phishing scheme.

Thanks for sharing this information with us, Deb.  I hadn't heard of this scam yet and luckily I haven't received such an email.  I'll be sure to let my fellow tweeters know about this.

Have a great weekend!

Yea, Facebook has one too.  It reads, "Your Facebook password has been changed.  If you did not change your password, click here."  That little click allows the bad guys to download a virus into your computer.  Beware, my friends...
