Fraud warning, talk on Stratford, steam train Sat,

Fraud Alert

The police are warning everybody to watch out for online fraud. They say that bogus auctions account for 65% of it. Beware of clicking on unsolicited emails or text messages. They may lead to sites that are mocked up to look like a well-known brand. Don’t give your bank details to fraudsters!

A quick glance in my junk mail folder produced this email from “Apple”.

One of many fraudulent emails

Right clicking on the sender shows that it’s not from Apple at all. And clicking on the email link takes you to this website:

Fake website

A quick glance in the browser bar shows you that it’s not the Apple website, which actually looks like this: https://secure2.store.apple.com/shop/login – if you go there directly yourself.
