Ok, so even if you’re pretty sure that it’s spam, there’s a little bit of you dying to click on that link and find out how much you can get paid, isn’t there?!! Clicking on unknown links can leave you vulnerable to viruses and spyware, so how can you be sure it’s not a genuine email and that you won’t be missing out on easy cash if you delete it?
Remember, Google is your friend! If you’ve received this email you can be pretty sure that many others have too, and you’ll generally find out quickly enough if the email is spam or not. In this case, a Google search brings up some interesting results. From the online discussions, it’s pretty clear that this is another email which should be sent straight to your trash!
So if it looks too good to be true – it probably is. We’ll just have to come up with some other ways to earn extra cash…let me know if you have any ideas!
