“Apple iPhone 7 testers wanted”: Probably the most complex scam I’ve seen this year!

 

This scam is sent by CHTAH.COM platform which is known to send millions of spam emails. You can see its added “value” by inserting the three colored rectangles on top of the mail.

“iPhone 7 Testers Wanted!” is trying to lure the readers to a website that looks very much like the times.com website.

The website tries to copy the CNN’s or BBC’s website but it is not very convincing as none of them looks anymore like this.

I guess that not many notice that it is not longer about the iPhone 7 but iPhone 6.

Well, it should cost £1, after all 🙂 🙂

After you click on that link, you see what is it all about:

You need to register there any introduce your credit card information to pay the 1 pound.

From this point on, it is just a standard phishing website that collects credit card information.
