It looks like i’m going to be doing a lot of cooking this holiday season with my brand new “CooksEssentials 12-piece Cookware Set w/ Color Smart Nonstick“.  ….NOT!

This scam uses a common scare tactic in an attempt to get you to panic and click on links in the email. A Virus total scan of the link revealed a “Malicious” content warning. See also Paypal’s warning about suspicious looking emails.

Thanks so much its great to know these things. Another big scam is on skype, Someone declares how pretty u r and want to be your friend and they usually pose as a General. Later they try and scam u into helping them out with their consignment box which is valued at an enormous sum of money. . Does my face look that stupid that I would go for this, expecially how they tell u over and over again how beautiful your r.
