According to the Federal Trade Commission new scam emails are being sent out that try to trick people into clicking on links that will download malware to their computers.
The latest scam takes the trick to a new low. Scammers are sending bogus emails with the subject line “funeral notification.” The message appears to be from a legitimate funeral home, offers condolences, and invites you to click on a link for more information about the upcoming “celebration of your friend’s life service.” But instead of sending you to the funeral home’s website, the link downloads malware to your computer.
In “Fake funeral notice can be deadly – for your computer,” the FTC’s new blog post about this scam, consumers will find tips to reduce the risk of downloading unwanted malware and spyware.
