Today I received from "firstname.lastname@example.org" a "Notice of Policy Updates" - a very long document containing numerous links which all seem to be identical though purportedly referring to different subjects. Am I correct in supposing this is a scam, and the links toxic?
I deleted it without clicking on any links . . . being in the habit of scrutinizing links pretty carefully before clicking on them
The message is, for the moment, still saved in my "Deleted" folder, so I can reproduce a (munged version of) the link/links if desired. I do know better than to post/re-post "live" links. Question arising, though, is it sufficient to replace the two forward slashes with two dashes to "denature" the link? I suppose that depends on the extent of "auto-correction" built into the operating system's link recognition software? So far (up through Win XP) that has worked for me, in that the result has not been recognized as a link; I have not yet had occasion to test this in Win 8.
FWIW I do have a PayPal account and use it to pay some but not all of my online purchases.
Thanks for enlightenment!
