It is a scam.. NEVER CLICK ON A LINK IN AN E-MAIL UNLESS YOU ARE 100% SURE OF ITS SOURCE OR YOU ARE EXPECTING A LINK TO BE SENT.

NEVER EVER CLICK ON ANY LINK SAYING IT IS FROM YOUR BANK, YOUR E-MAIL PROVIDER, PayPal OR eBay.

NEVER CLICK ON A LINK THAT IS REQUESTING ANY SORT OF INFORMATION FROM YOU

NEVER DOWNLOAD ANYTHING UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT IS AND WHERE IT CAME FROM.
IF IN DOUBT, SIMPLY CLICK REPLY AND ASK THE SENDER TO TELL YOU WHAT IT IS THEY HAVE SENT YOU.
IF YOU HEAR NOTHING THEN YOU KNOW IT IS JUST ANOTHER SCAM AND YOU CAN SHRED THE RECEIVED EMAIL


I often read of folk having their PayPal, eBay, what ever, account being 'hacked'
Sorry folks, it really does not happen..
What does happen is someone gets careless and either uses a link to an account that they got in an e-mail or an account via a public unsecured WiFi system

While hackers are indeed very real, bloody clever and there are indeed many more of them out there than folk realise ( I know of two, through professional links ) who do it legally for a living.

Hackers can earn a very substantial wage, and some do it for the challenge .. but unless you are named Alan Sugar or similar it will not be fiscally worth the hackers time and effort to get in to an average persons account ( unless that person has kindly given the password info to them by clicking on a link !!! )

You're just trying to scare everyone else off, John, so you're the only entrant!!!:tounge::tounge::tounge:

Kidding aside, very sound advice.

If it's one of the Facebook one's it's also no good. Not a scam as such but data collection. There is no voucher.
