Facebook and Youtube phishing emails claim that you’ve sent too many emails

05

It is not the first time when we see phishing emails targeting Facebook users.

It is also quite normal to see brands like Facebook, Google, Twitter and others used to advertised online pharmacies. Actually, we have blogged many times about several attempts to do this.

Now, to increase the sense of urgency, the email comes with the following text:

“Your message was not delivered. You have sent the maximum number of messages per day.”

This would make any normal user to click on the link to see what is going on and why did he send so many messages.

All links go the same website which is a Online Pharmacy site.

 

 

Fortunately, all these types are detected by the Avira Antispam software.
