    • Hello bro,

  2. Hi Ganesh,

    This post will get the masses educated about fraud e-mails. There are tons of such mails circulated each day and thousands fall prey to it.

    I noted that ‘peypal’ mail and remembered one such mail I got myself. It was from ‘Hyundai Motors’, asking me to appear for an interview. They also asked for a ‘security deposit’ of 15,000 Rupees!

    I knew that it was coming from a fake site, resembling Hyundai motors. Next thing I did was make a blog post about this scam and posted it on my blog. Yes, many people read about this scam and are saved. I guess some strict actions should be taken against them.

      Thanks for your kind comment. I appreciate it. It usually happens nowadays. It happened with you, it has happened with me, but we are secure because we are aware. This post should be spread and make people aware about such frauds. Awareness will be best way to reply these spammers.

    • Hello Shahzad,

      Gmail is a good service, but I received this email on my hosting account mail that is admin@techblogcloud.com. I do not have my paypal account associated with it. But, this was received and it is not necessary that every user is using gmail. Any other email address and new domain name may be used which is not in spam earlier by gmail and they can fraud easily. Hence, it is necessary to take care of such kind of mails at every step. Thanks for your comment.

    Hi Ganesh,

    We do receive a lot of spam emails these days, though spam filter on email systems like Gmail is really good and catches lot of them but still one has to be careful.
    We should not click on any links or download any attachment until we are sure about the emails..I always try to enter the URL manually in the browser instead of clicking the link in the email….

      You are right. We can not blame our mail service provider for these kind of mails, but it is our duty to avoid such kind of mails or verify properly before proceeding. Thanks for your kind comment. Keep visiting :-)
