Spam emails claiming that people are talking about your personality are currently hitting inboxes. The emails include a link that you can supposedly click to read what people are saying about you.
Some versions ask if people are telling the truth about you. Others ask if you are available for an interview.
But, despite the claims, the links in these messages do not open any discussions about you or anybody else.
In fact, the links open an instance of the infamous Canadian Pharmacy spam website.
The spammers know that at least a few people that they have managed to trick into visiting the spam site will linger and buy one or more of the site’s dodgy products.
Similar spam emails claim to be from popular online entities such as Facebook, WhatsApp, or Google. They claim that you have unread messages or that your messages have been blocked and you should click a link to read them. But, again, the links open pharmacy spam websites.
Spammers have used such tactics over and over again so these campaigns obviously do generate revenue for them.
As I discuss in another Hoax-Slayer report, buying medicine from these spam websites is a very bad idea that could have serious repercussions for your health and potentially expose you to credit card fraud and compromise the security of your computer.
If you receive one of these spam emails, do not follow any links that it contains. If you do click a link by mistake, close the spam website immediately.
