Me acaba de llegar practicamente el mismo mensaje sonlo cambia el remitente ( quien envia) y el correo para contactar al señor estafador, el correo es: confirming@live.co.uk

Se que es algún tipo de estafa, lo que quiero saber es como estas personas tan vicerales se ven beneficiadas con este tipo de engaños.

Lo que voy a hacer es someterme bajo las indicaciones del mensaje para investigar como obtienen dinero.

Luego les informo de que se trata Hasta Luego.

Xaivier Chia said...

Thanks for the visitor from Spanish, Gabo, I guess.

I try to translate your comments via Google translator to English as follows.

"I just got the same message which are changed the sender (who sends) and mail to contact the master con man, the mail is: confirming@live.co.uk

It is some kind of scam, I want to know is how are you people so visceral get benefit from this type of deception.

What I will do is submit under the direction of the message to find out how to get money.

Then I inform you that this is to then."


Thank you very much here for sharing your experience. It will definitely help others to get rid of this kind of scam.
