I am continually amazed at how low some people will sink for a buck.
FBI warns of mining accident e-mail scam. The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) is warning Internet users to be on the look out for a fraudulent e-mail soliciting money for a survivor of a mine accident in the U.S. last week. The e-mail purports to be written by a doctor at the hospital where the miner is being treated and describes the condition of the survivor and the financial assistance that is needed for a full recovery. “The FBI takes these matters seriously and is working with other law enforcement and private industry partners to identify the person(s) responsible,” the agency said in a statement on Wednesday, January 11. “Anyone who has received an e-mail of this nature is asked to contact the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center via the Website at www.ic3.gov.” The bureau also repeated its standard advice to refrain from opening or responding to unsolicited e-mails and to verify thoroughly any requests for money or personal information received via e-mail before responding.
As always remember you always need to defend yourself from evil people. Self-Defense does not stop at the computer screen, if anything you need to be even more vigilant online.
