Re: As Adobe upgrade, Phishing scam masquerades

Phishers use all kinds of happen on to draw in their fatalities. But one relentless piece of an unsolicited tries to trick people by offering an upgrade to existing Acrobat Adobe Reader., this type of promotion spam e-mails users a notice very carefully to upgrade to the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader. It possible to go the site on Adobe. Click the software and there is one option to click the upgrade. Then click on it. The domain name of the web site always it contains the adobe word. It is as attempt to give it some kind of authority. But in fact. it is only another malevolent site to designed to liberate personal information. Then on phony site the user provoked to provide contact information.

Of course dear, Adobe Reader is a free product. There is no cost of this product to pay but it want always for upgrading, that?s why the apply for for credit card information should be a tip-off that something is not mention right here. But the phony Web site does describe all description of the product as offering the skill to create and edit PDF files, but some of version of adobe product is available in the only paid version of Acrobat reader. But many people want the full product could be fooled. And most of information is scam, that?s why many bad people is miss use the authority. So that?s why they require the credit card information.
