WARNING! fake emails "from 4shared"

Postby oldman » Mon Dec 21, 2015 4:44 pm

"Your 4shared account has expired due to inactivity. Any files which you had at the moment of expiration date can be recovered within 30 days ONLY. Afterwards, they will be permanently removed. It's not too late to have everything back. You can fully recover your account and files by pressing the button:"

DON'T PRESS ANY BUTTONS !!


If u get an email like the one above ,be very careful as they are phishing scams .
I think gmail will give you a warning anyway but i'm not sure about other email providers.
