I will occasionally dire e-mails from (supposedly) Amazon and PayPal....saying there is a problem with my account, and until I can re-verify my identity...I cannot use them...

Funny thing is...(unlike most people)...i have *never* HAD either an Amazon or PayPal account,......LOL

I get scam ones now as text messages.... delete them.

Unfortunately, a friend of mine fell for one of these scams--phone scam. She was lucky that the care aide heard the conversation and stopped it. They took her computer to a repair place, and yup, the perpetrator had begun installing malware--luckily didn't get to finish the job.

Stay alert.

I had an email from Santanda, didn't even read it. I don't have account with Santanda.....I just deleted it. I could go into my ISP and block all future emails from this source, but others will soon materialise.........Just be carefull and be warned, it could happen to you.

Beware the one from HMRC telling you to click a link to claim a tax rebate of £240.
E mail not addressed to anybody in the household, no name, just says ‘hello’….a member of my family works for HMRC so I knew it was a scam. Delete it !
