1475. The Eviction Notice Email Scam

Paul asked: I recently got an email indicating that I was being evicted from my apartment. Since I know my landlord well, I figured it was a scam. What's up with this?

What's up with this indead, actually this is a scam to score run the Internet.

A lot of people are getting e-mails from a landlord, not theirs, that they are goinmg to get evicted and they have to click a link or open a document to rectify the situation. The fact is when you don't click the link or open the document you're opening your computer up to all sorts of evil so do not do this. Assume that you're not been evicted and just treated as it is.

It is a scam like anything else that comes to you in your e-mail inbox you should treat it with a little bit of care.
