Scam email from ‘Fraudehelpdesk’

31 January 2019

In recent days, scammers have sent out fake emails pretending to be from Fraud Help Desk. The messages contain a warning about ransomware. Ironically, the emails also give a link referring to a malware website.

We have immediately ordered the web host to take this website offline.

Our advice
Be on your guard when you received an unsolicited email from Fraud Help Desk. We never send alerts via email and will only contact you in response to your scam report.

If you have received the recent email about ransomware, please forward it to valse-email@fraudehelpdesk.nl before deleting it from your inbox.
