FW: Your Photos Scam

email 150x150 FW: Your Photos ScamRecently my work email has been filling up with spam. Despite the BBB’s strong firewall, filters, and other security, I’m getting two or three emails a day from various strangers with the subject “Fw: Your Photos.”

Inside it just says “Hi, Your Photos” or sometimes “Good Day Your Photos,” and gives a link for me to (NOT) click on. The links this morning went to different websites and the emails were from:

  • mehrdad@starmarino.net
  • rkaushik@jindalinds.com
  • richard@kellak.com
  • yvonna@vca.com
  • enzo@saltek.com

but they’re different every time. I noticed that the links inside the emails all went to websites starting with http:// instead of the safer https://.

If you get these spam and scam emails, please delete them or forward to www.ic3.gov, the FBI’s Internet Crime Center.
