Update 6/7/13: ANOTHER email about the SAME THING. This time, from email@example.com. DO NOT TRUST ANY OF THE EMAILS I HAVE LISTED IN THIS POST. DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR ACCOUNT.
Update 6/5/13: I just got the same exact email under another address; clearly they had to create a new one because everyone knew they were liars. Their mistake was sending it to me again -_- The email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Although their email this time seemed a lot more convincing, DO NOT tell them your account info!!!
Some of you may have gotten an email from email@example.com, about “free” items. Here is a screenshot:
I gave them a newbie account. This is what I replied:
So yeah, you can guess what happened. I didn’t get my items, nor did I expect to get my items.
If you received this email, DO NOT respond your account information. I don’t know how many people they have tricked so far, but let’s make sure they don’t trick any more.
This is yet another example of why you should think before giving away private information on the internet to too-good-to-be-true deals. (Click here for the Epic Free Prizes Scam post, if you haven’t read it already)
Once again, you can reblog this if you like, to spread the word.
