Watch Out for "Deferred Message" or "You Have Deferred Notification" Fake and Malicious Google Message

Would you share this Article with others?

Cyber-criminals are sending out fake email messages(see below), which appear as if they were sent by Google, YouTube or Facebook, with malicious or spam links. The malicious links will take the recipients, who have clicked on the links, to phishing websites, created by cyber-criminals to steal their personal and financial information, while the spam links will take them to untrustworthy websites where they will be asked to purchase fake or inferior products. The recipients may also be taken to malicious websites, where they will be tricked into downloading and installing malicious software like viruses, Trojan horse and spyware, disguised as legitimate software.

Remember, never click on a link to sign into your Google account. Always go directly to Youtube.com, Google.com or Gmail.com and sign into your account from there.

    Here's another variant on the scam, only this one is worded so that it looks as though an email that you sent was blocked by their email filter for -- you guessed it -- spam!

    -- Text of Scam Email Begins Below --

    "From: Gmail Notify <eretsill1983@bountymailings.com>

    Date: Sat, 6 May 2017 01:58:56 0000

    Subject: Message you sent blocked by our bulk email filter Becca Elaine

    Google

    Katie Phillips (Google Service) just sent you a message:

    --------- TEXT ENDS ----------

    What didn't copy was the big blue "Check Messages" button. Given the timing, I wouldn't be surprised if this was linked to the Wannacry ransomware.

    McAfee Site Advisor also notes potential security risks from the bountymailings (dot) com page (parked domain, malware downloads), so I would suggest automatically deleting anything coming from that address. It's listed elsewhere as being nothing but a spam generator.
