Scam messages that purport to be from banks, government institutions, or even from certain individuals circulate the Web. Email messages where recipients are told that they have won a prize or are asked for donations would already be familiar to most Web users. Scammers, however, show no signs of slowing down using this technique.
The Trend Micro Smart Protection Network already blocks these spammed messages, protecting users from this threat. Non-Trend Micro users are advised to not trust unsolicited email messages. Rewards and cash prizes that seem too good to be true probably are.
