Received message from Argos package waiting https//goo.gl/ tJ3QY5


Hello, Maureen -

I am answering from the USA. I find that Argos is a retailer in the United Kingdom.

First, if you received an email message with a link, such as the address you included in your question, I suggest you do not click on that link unless you know FOR SURE you ordered anything recently from Argos.

You MAY have been sent a phishing email with a link to a web site which could install some malware on your computer.

Instead, if you know you have an account for online purchases from Argos, go to the Argos website:
http://www.argos.co.uk/

Sign into your Argos account. Once in your Argos account, there is probably a link for messages or order status or something like that.

If you are not familiar with phishing scams (sounds like "fishing") read about phishing scams here:

I simply want to stop receiving unsolicited emails from Amazon. Cannot identify where on this reply site I can effect this. Searching this site using 'Unsubcribe to emails' has not led me to a...


Identifying Amazon E-mailFrom time to time, you might receive e-mails that look like they come from Amazon.com, but they are, in fact, falsified. Often these e-mails direct you to a Web site that looks similar to the Amazon.com Web site, where you might be asked to provide account information such as your e-mail address and password combination. Unfortunately, these false Web sites can steal your sensitive information; later, this information may be used to commit fraud. Some phishing messages contain potential viruses or malware that can detect passwords or sensitive data. We recommend that you install an anti-virus program and keep it updated at all times.
Below are some key points to look for in order to identify these e-mails:
1. Know what Amazon.com won't ask for
Amazon.com will never ask you for the following information in an e-mail communication:

  • Your social security number or tax identification number
  • Your credit card number, PIN number, or credit card security code (including "updates" to any of the above)
  • ***********'s maiden name
  • Your Amazon.com password

2. Requests to verify or confirm your account information
Amazon.com will not ask you to verify or confirm your Amazon.com account information by clicking on a link from an e-mail.
3. Attachments on suspicious e-mails
Amazon.com does not send order confirmations or other unsolicited requests that require you to open attachments, nor do we permit our merchants to do so. We recommend that you do not open any e-mail attachments from suspicious or unknown sources. If you receive a suspicious e-mail allegedly sent from Amazon.com that contains an attachment, we recommend you forward the e-mail to stop-spoofing@amazon.com (as an attachment if possible) without opening it. Delete the mail after you send it. If you opened an attachment in the e-mail, we recommend running anti-virus or anti-malware software.
4. Grammatical or typographical errors
Be on the lookout for poor grammar or typographical errors. Some phishing e-mails are translated from other languages or are sent without being proofread, and as a result, contain bad grammar or typographical errors.
5. Check the return address
Is the e-mail from Amazon.com? While phishers often send forged e-mail to make it look like it came from Amazon.com, you can sometimes determine whether or not it's authentic by checking the return address. If the "from" line of the e-mail looks like "amazon-security@hotmail.com" or "amazon-fraud@msn.com," or contains the name of another Internet service provider, you can be sure it is a fraudulent e-mail.
6. Check the Web site address
Genuine Amazon.com web sites are always hosted on the "amazon.com" domain--"http://www.amazon.com/. . . " (or "https://www.amazon.com/. . ."). Sometimes the link included in spoofed e-mails looks like a genuine Amazon.com address. You can check where it actually points to by hovering your mouse over the link--the actual Web site where it points to will be shown in the status bar at the bottom of your browser window or as a pop-up.
We never use a web address such as "http://security-amazon.com/. . ." or an IP address (string of numbers) followed by directories such as "http://123.456.789.123/amazon.com/. . . ."
Alternately, sometimes the spoofed e-mail is set up such that if you click anywhere on the text you are taken to the fraudulent Web site. Amazon.com will never send an e-mail that does this. If you accidentally click on such an e-mail and go to a spoofed Web site, do not enter any information and just close that browser window.
7. If an e-mail looks suspicious, go directly to the Amazon.com Web site
When in doubt, do not click the link included in an e-mail. Just go directly to www.amazon.com and click "Your Account" in the top right menu to view recent purchases, or review your account information. If you cannot access your account, or if you see anything suspicious, let us know right away.
8. Do not "unsubscribe"
Never follow any instructions contained in a forged e-mail that claim to provide a method for "unsubscribing." Many spammers use these "unsubscribe" processes to create a list of valid, working e-mail addresses.
9. Protect your account information
If you did click through from a spoofed or suspicious e-mail and you entered your Amazon.com account information you should immediately update your Amazon.com password. You can do this through Your Account by choosing the option to "Change your name, e-mail address, or password" found under Account Settings.
Even if someone has been able to look at your account, they are still not able to see your full credit card information. However, orders can be sent from your account using your credit card so please contact us immediately if you notice any orders that you do not recognize.
However, if you did submit your credit card number to the site linked to from the forged e-mail message, we advise that you take steps to protect your information. You may wish to contact your credit card company, for example, to notify them of this matter. Finally, you should delete that credit card from your Amazon.com account to prevent anyone from improperly regaining access to your account. To do so, click "Edit or delete a credit card" under Payment Settings in Your Account.
How To Report Phishing E-mails or Request Account Assistance
If you have received an e-mail you know is a forgery, or if you think you have been a victim of a phishing attack and you are concerned about your Amazon.com account, please let us know right away:

My email account keeps sending mail to my contacts. This is not okay with me. How do I solve this problem?


Good Day Ganeatone!

I'm sorry to hear that, It is clearly that your email account has been phished.

" What is phishing?

Fraudsters send fake emails or set up fake web sites that mimic Yahoo!'s sign-in pages (or the sign-in pages of other trusted companies, such as eBay or PayPal) to trick you into disclosing your user name and password. This practice is sometimes referred to as "phishing" - a play on the word "fishing" - because the fraudster is fishing for your private account information. Typically, fraudsters try to trick you into providing your user name and password so that they can gain access to an online account. Once they gain access, they can use your personal information to commit identity theft, charge your credit cards, empty your bank accounts, read your email, and lock you out of your online account by changing your password."

If you think you entered your Yahoo! ID and password at a phishing site, then change your password immediately to prevent phisher from using your email account from sending spam mails.



That will help.

I got a mail that i have won prize from bbc online lottery is that true or fake mail


You have received a "phishing" E-mail -- definite *FAKE*.

If you supply any information (mother's maiden name, your credit-card number) or if you followed their instructions to send money via Western Union to them, then you have become a victim of "identity theft". Contact your local bank or credit-union, and get a "watch" put onto your bank-accounts, credit-cards.

Most definitely a phish. Don't respond to it but do go to Yahoo's mail site and check your account there. DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS IN EMAIL! You could end up anywhere. Delete all suspicious mail - do not click on the "unsubcribe" link. You're just telling them your email address is active and they aren't going to unsubscribe you from anything.
