Is Advanced Computer Scan a Scam?

Advertisement

I keep getting "Advanced Computer Scan" spam emails like the one below that contain links that go to advanced-scan-pricing.com. The emails claim there is a new "Advanced Computer Scan 2020 Update," but I have never registered with that company. And, clicking on the links in the emails goes to a website that claims their office is located in London, United Kingdom, but it does not state specifically where in London. I tried contacting them at their contact telephone number 855-2550-420, but I am not able to get anyone.

    I do not trust unsolicited emails that say I am an existing customer, when I am not. Unsubscribed, for whatever good that will do.

    It appears to be a scam because advanced-scan-pricing.com was registered 18 days ago and notificationadvance.com was registered only 12 days.
