So, I have something I know is a scam, but I’m not entirely sure of the angle.
I received an email invoice for auto-renewal of Norton antivirus this morning: 5 years, $500.
Thing is, I’m not a Norton subscriber and never have been.
The “From” address was just an ordinary (non-corporate) address, the text was riddled with misspelling and awkward constructions, it used the word “kindly” more than once, and nothing in the email identified me at all. Just “Customer” or something like that. Also, there’s weird spacing that I think is meant to circumvent spam filters. My spam filter is really good — this is a once in a blue moon even when something like this gets through.
There *is* a customer service number to call with “questions.” I assume that’s the **hook** — but what exactly is the **trap**?
