The scammer’s new trick targeting cash from users who have accounts with online banking processors



Today, I received an e-mail in my account claiming to have been sent by Perfect Money, which must have targeted a different person, or it was just the guesswork of the scammer trying the same trick to multiple online users, spreading his fishing net wide so as to scam the unsuspecting victims.

To anyone who has several years in online work, it cannot take him/her a second to recognize this as a phishing mail.

1. Any e-mail from the online banking processor would address the customer/user by his/her first or both names, but not a generic title like in this case- ‘Dear customer.’
2. The usual grammatical errors would be spotted in such e-mails.
3. Mostly end up in the spam folder.

Now see where it all becomes interesting?

The scammer is instructing me to read the attached guidelines in order to have my account access.

The trick is that the ‘attached guidelines’ is in a PDF file document that has to be downloaded.

I am yet to know what kind of malicious software that might be contained in the file, but it can be something very harmful to my computer.

This reminds me of a story shared by one of my friends at WA who fell victim of such trick, ending up to download a software that ended up damaging his computer, losing a lot of important data.

I suspect that some online sites that I opened accounts with have sold off my e-mail address to these scammers.

What makes me think that I might not have been their target is that; I have no account with Perfect Money, which rules out any doubts that this is absolute scammer’s trick to get access to the password to the account and be able to steal all cash available.



All That You should Know About Legit Smart Scam writing Sites?

I have a long list of the writing sites that I have tried to earn from but it is so disappointing to see that most of the writing paying sites that promise a huge share of the ads revenue to the users are getting created each and every day but are not able to stand the test of time in the industry.

Fortunately for me, I am part of one site that never disappoints the users when it comes to the benefits promised, and has been in business for over 10 years without issues with the users, that I can recommend to anyone who wishes to build long term online business with.

It has been a common trend to see that some of these writing sites enter the market with a lot of empty promises, targeting the few users who sign up as first members to invite their friends and thus growing the membership list until they attain the traffic expected, without the need to spend any money on site promotion campaigns.

Most of the like sites seem to enter the business with a different intention from the one they disclose to the users in their “how it works”

Take for instance the following sites which I was a member and once earned some cash from;
Gicacircle- I learnt about this site from a friend when writing on bubblews, and I decided to make an attempt, just to spread the risk of uncertainty of working online. When I had signed up and posted a few articles, I realized that it was not worth my time, thus waited for a while but when I decided to take another look at the site, it happened that the site didn’t exist anymore.

Teckler- I was able to get paid once from teckler before they stopped paying the users, even though the site still exists with content contributed by the users, still earning them residual income.

Bubblews- since I couldn’t cope up with their change in earnings rate and payment policy, very many users couldn’t cope up with the site, especially after failing to pay me over $570 dollars. My account is still alive with over $20 dollars, but could take a lifetime to reach their minimum threshold of $50 dollars, and still wait for more 3 months for the payment to be sent.
