Fake Sony Prize spam…
Got this today (phone spam, not email). It’s actually a good example of what to watch out for…
“You have been chosen to receive a free gift. Go to http:// www .sony.com.au.ircontest.info and enter code **** to claim it and tell us where to ship it”.
- Hyperlink broken for safety.
- The hyperlink is designed to look like it will take you to “sony.com.au” when in fact it will take you to “ircontest.info”. If the URL was sony.com.au/ircontest.info it would belong to Sony, but because it is sony.com.au.ircontest.info (a full stop, not a slash) you will end up at a subdomain of ircontest.info, not sony.com.au (clear as mud?)
