As with all these type of scams if the offer is too good to be true it probably is. The latest to hit my inbox is Testers for Tesla with a promise of making $5000 a day. It got past the spam detection and if it arrives in your email box as with all these type of nasties DO NOT click on the hyperlinks and in this particular case that includes the innocent green and underlined header as that is another hidden hyperlink.


Also DO NOT be tempted to unsubscribe as suggested at the bottom of the email as this is yet another angle to get you hooked.


As always the best form of defence is you if it reads badly, looks dodgy or is not expected then destroy.

Thanks for the report, I will spread this knowledge further. do you have a picture or a sample of how the email looks? Would be interested in seeing how accurate it actually is.
