Looking For A ‘Wire Transfer (1613XA73)’ That Promises Cash?
Well an Email titled ‘Wire Transfer (1613XA73)‘ will do everything but deliver a large cash influx into your hands.
In fact, this pesky Email that ‘alerts’ you about a large Wire Transfer is more likely to transfer cash out of your account and into the hands of an Internet fraudster. The brief message reads:
Your Wire Transfer Amount: $ 12,848.75
Transaction Report: View
The Federal Reserve Wire Network
As you can see in the attached image, there’s a link provided to “View” the transaction report. Unfortunately, the URL resolves to a .hu domain that’s being used to harvest information off the computer system of anyone that makes the mistake of clicking on the link. By clicking, you could risk installing malware, viruses or other malicious code that exposes security holes in your machine so be sure to immediately delete this message if you got it.
I hope that you found this post helpful and ask that you kindly share it with your friends at your favorite social network. Thanks and safe computing!
