Sex Offender Warning SCAM – DO NOT CLICK!

This was a very new style of scam, one guaranteed to fool any parent or concerned human!

It was sent from;

———- Forwarded message ———-
From: “kids Iive-safe.” <[email protected]millioncoupon.co>
Date: 3 Oct 2015 13:53
Subject: family Safety- alert [S.no:23803].

And the email looks like this;

neighbourhood_watch_sex_offender_scam

It comes across very genuine and real,  but when you hover over elements the links show as;

hXXp://user.name.xfpbma8p.giftsworld.lol/Nvew/rrcmzm-r500ja/hhuzumcr-cgzllucggh.qwm

Breaking that down, the domain name is

hXXp://giftsworld.lol

And whether that looks & feels like a trustworthy domain or not, its certainly not something you would expect a message of this nature to utilise!

The unsubscribe link goes to;

hXXp://user.name.xfpbma8p.giftsworld.lol/Ljp/rrcmzm-r500ja/hhuzumcr-cgzllucggh.qwm

Which is slightly different to the original URL, so I bet the target pages show slightly different info so as to further reinforce its authenticity.

A very unusual scam this one, and also quite worrying as MANY people will fall for this.

Be warned guys!
