Beware : Home Video Library phishing scam eMail

! BEWARE !

today I got an eMail from Home Video Library, stating “Your video is successfully published”,

on my Mac this was immediately recognizable as a Junk-message (or rather : a Phishing Scam-message), as you can see in the picture below, but on my iPhone that wasn’t so easy to figure out… it was mainly the fact that I haven’t used Picasa in ages that made all alert bells ring in this case… and the fact that I’ve never heard of a company or service called Home Video Library raised more suspiciousness…homevideolibrary_scam…so BEWARE !

Note : this scam eMail comes in various versions, there are similar ones pretending to be from Picasa Library. More info on that can be found here.

today I got an eMail from PicasaLibrary, stating “Your photo is successfully uploaded”,

on my Mac this was immediately recognizable as a Junk-message (or rather : a Phishing Scam-message), as you can see in the picture below, but on my iPhone that wasn’t so easy to figure out… it was mainly the fact that I haven’t used Picasa in ages that made all alert bells ring in this case… and the fact that I’ve never heard of PicasaLibrary (and would expect it to be written Picasa Library) raised more suspiciousness…picasa_scam…so BEWARE !

Note : this scam eMail comes in various versions, a similar one pretending to be from Picasa Library also states “Damaged photos found”. More info on that one can be found here.
