I guess I don’t need to apologize for posting this message. The subject of this email which was sent to me last week says like this, “Re: # Account Disabled (URGENT)”. Why I say this is a scam? First, I know that I don’t currently live in the Philippines and I never had an account with RCBC. This stands for Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation. Why I know that? I also worked with the top 3 bank in the Philippines before but resigned my job because I need to join my husband abroad.
Second reason why this is a scam; The sender of the email is not really from any RCBC personnel or employe e from from this email address email@example.com.
Sad for you guys who are scamming and spamming the net. As a blogger, I also want to inform my readers and viewers about information that will let them know of what is going on in the net. I just want my readers to be aware about scams mails that are proliferating in the internet.
If you received a mail like the one below, please ignore it and immediately put it in your spam box. Scammers and spammers out there, be careful to whom you send your mails.
This is the body of the scam mail I received from last week.
