We received scam email in our Customer Service email using a pretty common tactic this morning. I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give everyone a reminder about this old trick.

Check it out.  The message came from an email address belonging to one of our customers here at Worldstart. It read that the full message was not able to display and that you’d have to click a link in the message to see it.

It also displayed an error number that included our domain name to make it seem more believable. The error would be from Worldstart.com, not the sender’s email.

This is a flat-out scam. If you click that link, you’ll be directed to a site full of malware and other nasty stuff.  So don’t click these links. If you know the email address it came from, start a separate email and ask that person if they sent you anything. (Don’t hit reply. That message isn’t really coming from your friend.  Odds are that the answer is no.
