Scammers have once again tried me. They send me an email message with this subject line; “Invitation: Congratulations You Have Won iPhone. @ Wed Sep 4, 2019 9:44am – 9:59am (PDT) ([email protected])”.
After carefully reviewing the message and its attachments, I realized how this was another calendar spam message other than being a legit one. If you are like me, I mean having received such a message, take it from me that this isn’t real and you haven’t won anything.
Check out the email content and compare with yours;
