Product recalls are a serious business. I mean if the product you have purchased could be dangerous, of course you would want to have it replaced. This scammer was attempting to play on this fear, but s/he wasn’t exactly successful….
Put aside the terrible spelling for a second and just try to get your head around the idea of a spontaneously combusting debit card!!
Whilst this might not be the most believable scam out there, the official header and the urgency of the messages plays on the fears of consumers. This can often cloud a user’s judgement, and make them give information away that they usually would not.
The best way to avoid falling victim to this kind of scam is to take a breath and really check these kinds of communication. Never give personal details or information through email/mail. An official correspondence would never ask for this information.
