    Default Scam emails : Skrill (senders faked)

    Just received and email from "moneybookers" about an account closure for not accepting their new T&C's



    Not from skrill but the email looks very realistic, watch out guys.

    Aw why do you get all the luck? Let me know when the money has arrived into your bank account, and we can get the champagne in.

    Yeah I got this today too and forwarded it to Skril's phishing email address.

    Worrying thing is that the email it went to is for an email address that I only give out to programs who are paying via moneybookers - it doesn't exist in any other form and isn't easily guessable (ie: it's not moneybookers@mysite.com).

    So either the moneybookers account list has been compromised somehow, or someone from a program has been selling payment emails. Both are pretty worrying!

    Yeah that's what got me, how they sent it to my moneybookers email account add that to a realistic looking email and I had to check twice.

    It's easy!

    With every real email from Moneybookers / Skrill you will be adressed with your full name.
    With every fake email you will be adressed only with your email adress.


    If your full name is missing, then delete it.

    Yes I have a separate email address used only for one of the ewallets and I can guarantee that you have hit the nail on the head here - I get lots of spam and phishing to it and it has never been given to anyone other than a few affiliate programs.

    yea i got this yesterday as well, deleted it as the grammar didn't read correctly and the email never mentioned my name, however it's worrying that it went to the correct email address. somebody has definitely made a quick buck selling them.

    Just notify skrill and maybe they can have the domain taken down to stop others from getting cheated.
