    Sketchy Neopets email with malware?

    Soo
    I just saw this on Reddit:

    Spoiler:




    if anyone still has this email saved and wouldn't mind forwarding it to me... i really would like to take a good look at it



    and it's the obvious fake message where they send you a malicious link with malware and all that stuff. I saw this on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and a friend just confirmed to me that she knows at least two people that received an email just like this. The URL typed in there is obviously fake and it probably links to somewhere else... Did anyone else receive this email?

    I'm also really curious to know what's the address that sent it, where the link leads and what the file does. lol I reckon it might be a common malware or a malware that sends your login info to whoever made it, dunno.

    Anyway, this could be a PSA to be smart out there. Most people here probably already know not to trust sketchy emails and click random links, but yeah. Always check to see if the email was sent to you from the official Neopets email, NEVER open random email attachments (especially if they are .exe) and all that.

    Bob really needs to empty that inbox heh

    But indeed, this kind of scams are kind of old, but is never bad to make people remember to don't fall for them, even if the link looks legit, the actual url of the text is probably different than what it states.
