Be aware that scammers are focusing on taking over your Email, Facebook, and MySpace accounts. How this works is, you’ll get an email claiming to be from you email provider, facebook and/or myspace. The email will talk about your account being “Suspended” unless you update your information. The email will ask you to clink on a link, which will direct you to another url and then ask for your user name, password etc. When you do this, the bad guys will log into your account, change the password and voila, your account has now been taken over. Now, everyone in your email/friends list will get a message claiming to be from you and asking for money. Above is an “Actual” email takeover message.
If you get an email asking for you to update your information, “DO NOT” click on the link within the email. Instead, contact the email provider, facebook or myspace directly and ask them about the email.
