I've received several emails in the past week that I don't trust
and have not clicked on the hyperlink. I'm curious if other Tuggers think the email is legit.

The title of the email says " You Tube Service sent you a Message: Your video has been approved.

I have never sent a video to You Tube - that's the first thing that made me suspicious.

When I open the email it has the YouTube trademark icon
and underneath the icon it says "You Tube Service has sent you a message" - the first two words in this string (You Tube) are a hyperlink.

Then there another long hyperlink - I don't know how to type it without making it an active link which I don't want to do.

Then the last sentence says "You can reply to this message by visiting your inbox" - with the last word in the string (inbox) being a hyperlink.

Wonder what others think about this.

Thanks

Richard

Sounds like they are trying to lure you to a website where it will install some type of Trojan on your system. You should be able to hover over the links and see in the status bar at the bottom of the window what it actually links to. Be careful though as it may have a very similar name. Don't click it. Just delete.

They are hoping you think "What the he!!, I didn't submit a video" and just click the link out of frustration. Just like those e-mails that tell me my Dell Laptop has shipped. To the trash bin they go.
