TDC Warns Against Phishing

scam_truckFormer telecom monopoly in Denmark, TDC, says in its latest press release that phishing e-mails are increasing.

What happens – you never see your “cover the expenses”-money or the money from your rich uncle. While this kind of scam is so old, people still fall for it.

But that’s not biggest threat.

What really sucks, are the phishing sites. They can be really, really hard, to spot.
