The News&Guide continues with another edition of No-fraud Friday this week, detailing scams as provided by CyberWyoming. Here are a couple of scams to watch out for.
• A Laramie citizen reported a scam from email@example.com with the subject line, “Congratulations you have won” with an attachment detailing instructions to receive the winnings. Unfortunately, neither the winnings nor email are legit, reports CyberWyoming. Don’t click the attachment, and don’t fall for similar scams.
• Another Laramie citizen reported a scam, from John Nooky at firstname.lastname@example.org or David Lamptey at email@example.com asking for the recipient’s name, address and phone number. The supposed deal: Provide those details and receive business funds. This, too, is a scam, reports CyberWyoming.
• A Sheridan citizen reported a scam from firstname.lastname@example.org, who sends recipients a fake link to download Norton antivirus software. This link isn’t legit, and CyberWyoming warns never to download software from a link in an email.
