Today I received an email entltled Re-Update from TELUS:

 

"Dear User,

We noticed it's as being long you have updated your Telus Mail. Kindly Re-Update your Telus Mail now to avoid disconnection.

Link valid for 6 hours

Service Mail Support"

 

The "Re-Update" is a clickable link. Usually the grammatical errors alone would be a tip-off. Ironically, the emails I receive from Telus reps have very similar grammatical mistakes. This email has no graphics, it's from:  telusservice  at:   i-dot-telus-dot-com

I didn't click. Just wondered if anyone else has received this invitation.

Definitely a scam but no different than before the email outage.

Thanks. I guess I should consider myself lucky that I get so few of these!

Interesting. I didn't know they were also calling people now. Used to be only badly worded spam emails.

I hope not many people are/were being scammed. I thought the bar couldn't get any lower.

I guess this as an annoyance that's pretty common, but I'm happy to report it. It's deliberately targeting people in a fix, not just random. I didn't have an email to forward it to, so thanks for that, Polecat!
