🚨 Upon examination, we have concluded that this is a tricky scam because, instead of asking for money, it notifies you that funds have been paid. This type of scam makes people think they've paid money for something they haven't consented to, and it encourages them to take actions based on their fear of losing money.
🕵🏼 How to tell:
- The Geek Squad icon is slightly misshapen, which is a common telltale sign of a spoofing scam.
- The greeting isn't personalized. Legitimate companies will always use some personalized greetings using your email address/name. Generic greetings like, "Dear Customer" or, "To Premium User" are rarely real.
- Sentences on this email have grammatical errors, such as, "In case of any further clarifications or block the autorenewal..."
🔒 Ways to stay safe:
- Mark the email as Spam/Junk on your mailbox to prevent the same sender to send more scam emails to your address.
- Go straight to your bank statement to check for recent transactions that could match the amount.
- Never click on a link from a sender whose identity you cannot verify.
