Hi friends, a very Good Morning to everyone. Hopefully all have made plans to spend a relaxing weekend with their friends and families.
Yesterday, i guess the HYIP industry revealed one of it’s ugly side, with numerous phishing mails circulated from various servers, disguised to be sent from different popular HYIPs, namely Profitable Sunrise and Oil Of Asia.
All of these mails were nothing but an attempt by probably a group of scam stars to mislead individuals who are not much experienced about this dark side of the online money making industry. All of these phishing mails, in some way or the other asked the members to verify their ownership in a particular program or directed them to a fake LibertyReserve site. The links placed in these phishing mails may also contain hidden keylogger virus. Finally the only purpose of these phishing mails was to hack your LibertyReserve account and completely empty it.
Well, the HYIP industry is filled with many fraudulent people. In my opinion, the best way to deal with these phishing mails is never to click any link placed within these mails and just delete it. Friends, one not of advice, to keep your e-currency accounts safe, please do not ever click any link placed in mails, unless you know the sender very well. If you are curious, just Google it.
About two years back, I published an article regarding the measures one should take to protect your LibertyReserve account. The article may be of help here – HOW TO PROTECT YOUR LIBERTYRESERVE FROM HACKING
