Any time I get an email offering me a free anything just for clicking on a link, I get suspicious.
I know. Iām 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 āJā who sent me a free coffee from Qualia coffee courtesy of āThe Home Run Team.ā All I had to do was click on the link!
The first flag was that I never even heard of Qualia coffee. The second flag was the guy (or gal) who supposedly sent me the email had an email address that I didnāt recognize.
So I instantly googled āQualia Home Run scamā and I discovered that, guess what? Itās essentially a scam!
Whatever you do, please donāt click on the link or youāll 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 ā and thatās really no way to treat your friends, people. Youāll also be asked to give your credit card number. (Why would you need to do that for a free coffee?)
Iāll spare you the dirty details, but the bottom line is you should just stay away from this ādealā ā whether you might ultimately end up with a free coffee or not.
