The newest social engineering scam email hitting some inboxes is the “thank you for your Red Sox ticket order” email. In this spam, the fake order confirmation tells you that you have ordered over $200 ($238 in the example below) worth of Red Sox tickets, which have been charged to your MasterCard.
Here’s the email – if you receive this fake Red Sox ticket order email, don’t click on any of the links!
