Scam Alert: Hackers Posing As Medikal To Steal Personal Info
A group of lousy hackers are posing as Medikal and using a fake email of him to hack emails and steal personal information.
I received an email this morning which looks like an email from Ghana’s Hip-Hop star; Medikal. When I opened the email, I realized that wasn’t his email address and it was just to get people download some sort of attachment suspected to be a potential a virus. The virus can steal your login information or email contents.
This is just a quick alert for other bloggers or anyone planning on doing business with Medikal and the AMG team. Please double-check the email address before you download any attachment. Usually, attachments shows previews in the mail and it’s scanned by the email anti-virus system before it allows you to download. If you are not sure, please contact Medikal and his team via social network to confirm.
These are some of the reasons why popular and influential artistes like Medikal need to get verified on all social media platforms to avoid impersonation and fraud. Please share this and alert people about the ongoing scam. It could be a name of another artiste as well; so be careful what you click from emails that looks like a good business opportunity offered by an artiste.
