Beware of Credit Card Scams in The Internet

Do you own a credit card? Did you received an email like the one I copied and posted below? If yes, better be very careful because most of the time this kind of mails are scam or fraudulent ones. I received one today with attachment but I did not bother to open the attachment because I am afraid that there might be viruses attach in it like Trojan virus or any malwares that may harm my computer.

I just want to remind you that if you receive this kind of mails, please ignore it and immediately put it in your spam mails so you won`t receive it next time in your inbox. Never ever entertain this kind of scam mails and never ever give your personal information, passwords or pin numbers.

The best thing for you to do is confirm your credit card provider if ever they are sending such kind of mail to you. You can also call them for more clarification or verification.

Here is a scam or fraudulent email I received today about credit cards.
