Old Scam on Uptick – Beware
A long-running scam email campaign that pretends to be an unsubscribe confirmation request has seen an uptick recently. These emails should never be clicked on or responded to as they are designed to harvest working email addresses or to perform some other type of scam. Over the past week, BleepingComputer has seen a constant stream of emails with subjects like “Confirm your unsubscribe request” or “Client #980920318 To_STOP_Receiving These Emails From Us Hit reply And Let Us Know”. While this is a long-running email scam, this is the first time we encountered them, so we thought we should issue an alert.
