This scam is targeting Email users - beware!

A scam possibly be originating out of Alabama (a US province) is luring Email users.

Modus Operandi:

A pop up message informs a user that his/her email box has reached its maximum limit of 20GB, and his/her account will be deactivated if he/she does not upgrade. To upgrade the user is asked to follow a link to get more storage.

Once the link is clicked, extensive personal information is requested.

That is precisely the objective of this scam: Get a person’s personal information.

Although the scam is comprehensive enough; still better beware.

In short - do not click any link out of the fear of deactivation. --------
