A long-running scam campaign with emails pretending to be unsubscribe confirmation requests has started popping up online again.
In these emails you should never click on the flying link or generally respond, as they are designed to collect "live" email addresses and then execute another type of fraud.
Unlike regular site removal notifications, these fraudulent emails contain no indication of where you are disconnecting and simply ask you to state:
Please_confirm your Unsubscribe
To confirm your Unsubscribe, please click here or on the link below.
Plus, these emails come with a variety of looks, some of which look completely professional, like the one below.
If you are looking for trouble and click the "unsubscribe" button, a new message with the subject "Unsubscribe" will be written, without text on his body and he will want to send it to 15 to 20 e-mail addresses. These email addresses are usually for domains hosted by the free DNS service noip.com.
It goes without saying that you should definitely not send any emails to these spammers and just delete the email
If you are wondering what will happen if you send this unsubscribe email, we can not tell you for sure, but we have some ideas.
Spammers create lists of "live" or active emails that can be used for more lucrative online scams such as phishing, diet pills, vitamins and loans.
If you respond to spammers, you are actually telling fraudsters that they have a "live" email and so they add you to a list of active email accounts that can be used for other scams. These email lists can then be sold to other scammers or used for their own purposes.
Knowing this, never reply to spammers' messages and just delete them. If you reply, you will end up getting even more spam in your inbox.
