MEMBERS’ COMMENTS:-
 
FIRST:- A DVLA Scam
 
Hi Jeff

 
This is the second time I have received this email.  I have deleted the it, as I know it to be a scam.
 
Regards
 
Richard
 
Thanks Richard – it follows the standard format
 
Not personally addressed - It is addressed to his email
Reason for email - It says Payment for Car Tax has failed
Inducement - He has 5 days to pay
Threat - If he fails – they will issue proceedings
 
Click on the LINK to complete payment details !!

 
NEXT:-  A delivery scam – with a difference:
 
Hi Jeff

Just another one to add to the list.
 
Kind regards
 
Yvonne
 
Yvonne forwarded a copy of an email sent to a large number of people, with the request to send it on to everyone you know.  It details a scam saying that you get e note through your door, to say they tried to deliver a parcel, but you were out, so please phone for an appointment for re-delivery.  The email goes on to say the call is to a premium rate number and you will be charged hundreds of pounds for the call.
 
This is a double scam !  There is no such thing as a premium account which will charge you that much.  These premium rate types of scare scams, have been circulating for years.  It is a form of cyber terrorism, to make us afraid, to raise our anxiety levels, to keep us in a continual state of apprehension and distrust of everything and everyone !
 
Anything which says – ‘send this onto everyone you know’ – should be binned immediately.

 
Can I also add – if you are forwarding warnings to large numbers of people – use the ‘bcc’ function in your email.  This sends the message to everyone listed, but hides all the email addresses, from everyone else, who receives it.  No-one, can see anyone else’s email address.  Some people, may not be happy with you sharing their email address with all and sundry, without their express consent – and – if the next person forwards the message to another group, that group are also visible to each other - and - all the email addresses in the original email are still visible !!
 
NEXT:- Another Council tax scam:
 
Hi Jeff,

 
Yet another phishing scam email ...
 
David

 
The message is not addressed personally
It details £155 Council Tax overpayment
He only has 3 days until 27/11 to claim
Or the money will be lost
Click on the link – which looks reasonable – until you hover your curser over the Link.  Then you can see it is not going to the same place !!!!
 
DON’T LET IT BE YOU – BIN IT

 
NEXT:  More feedback re the Post Office scam:
 
Hi Jeff

I also had the scam sent to my e-mail. It seems a rather amateurish affair. I was immediately suspicious because I wasn’t expecting any deliveries, but also the e-mail had no Post Office logo and on the line showing the sender.  Not only did it say Post Office, but also the e-mail address of ‘a.khalil’ !
 
Regards
Roy
 
Thanks Roy
