Any time I get an email offering me a free anything just for clicking on a link, I get suspicious.
I know.Â I’m just paranoid that way, but it usually saves me a lot of heartache down the road.
Not five minutes ago I got an email from “J” who sent me a free coffee from Qualia coffee courtesy of “The Home Run Team.”Â All I had to do was click on the link!
The first flag was that I never even heard of Qualia coffee.Â The second flag was the guy (or gal) who supposedly sent me the email had an email address that I didn’t recognize.
So I instantly googled “Qualia Home Run scam” and I discovered that, guess what?Â It’s essentially a scam!
Whatever you do, please don’t click on the link or you’ll be started down a process that ultimately ends up launching a program that contacts every member in your email address book with the same slimy deal – and that’s really no way to treat your friends, people.Â You’ll also be asked to give your credit card number.Â (Why would you need to do that for a free coffee?)
I’ll spare you the dirty details, but the bottom line is you should just stay away from this “deal” — whether you might ultimately end up with a free coffee or not.
