The year of the horse, with a kick!

February 3rd, 2014

Hi.

What better way to kick off the year of the horse celebration than with a dose of SPAM? More SPAMs of course! Here’s another classic example of spam that unfortunately succeeded in deceiving some of us:

email users are expected to click the link for upgrade to migrate your
email account to the new 2013 web mail Server, your are advice to
click the below link for upgrade of your email to our new 25GB Mail

www.tinyurl.com/xxxxxxx

This is free and you do not need to Pay for this. Your account will
remain active after you have successfully Increase your Mail Quota.
Regards,
Mail System Administrator
Copyright 2013 E-mail Account Upgrade.

As usual, please ignore and delete this email. And FYI, our email quota has already been upgraded to 5GB, so if there is another upgrade we will email everyone just to let you know. WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU TO FILL ANY FORM AND/OR GIVE US YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD! We don’t need your username and password to upgrade your quota. Please keep that in mind. Thank you for your time and have a productive day ahead.
