You have been awarded N500,000 Naira in the GTBank New Year promo is SCAM



I just stumbled on a new scam while checking through my email inbox and decided to share it with you. The email message is titled "YOU HAVE BEEN AWARDED N500,000 NAIRA IN THE GTBANK NEW YEAR PROMO"  with  "GeNS@gtbank.com" been displayed as the sender.


Below is the body of the email message: 

Dear Valued customer,

SCAM???

Please, IT IS A PURE SCAM. DO NOT FALL FOR IT. 

If you receive such message, try to move your mouse over the link in the message. You will see that the link is pointing to an address totally different from the link in the message. On clicking the "https://gtbank.com/newyearpromo" in the message above, I was redirected to "gtbankpromo.owellware.net/1st.html" Imagine that!

Besides, my Mozilla Firefox browser alerted me that the page has been reported as a forgery. 

Please, DO NOT FALL FOR THE SCAM. Kindly share this with your friends.

Surf the Internet carefully.

Cheers!
