Why this blog?

Hours ago I received an email, it was from one of my friend in same organization and the mail was copied to more than hundred people. It looked genuine, asking for help by forwarding it, but still I thought of googling on that email and found very surprising things about it. It was a SPAM and intended to collect email addresses. My friend was a victim and as he send the mail to the senders address (as requested in the email) and copied the mail to all of his friends, obviously the culprit got a huge list to attack.
Few hours later I got the same mail from someone else,  and I realize people respond to such mails and get trapped because of their emotions, without realizing that it could harm them.
We get such emails everyday and most of the people do what has been asked in the email without investigating further about the sender or the fake content in the email. We fall prey to such attacks, but we can save ourselves and others from such attempt just by looking around.

Web is an excellent resource of information, dig it and we can make sure we are SAFE!

This blog is an attempt to collect and post such information on Spam emails, online frauds etc and help people to protect themselves.
