A phishing mail, that is. Egold has always reminded members that it does not and will not send emails with clickable links, so be wary of those mails, they're just out to rob you of your egold.

Check out these other fake egold emails in this thread:

Hahaha, daming phisherman :nemo: talaga. One friend told me rin na you should separate yung email na ginamit mo for e-gold account and another email account for your other HYIP's accounts. :sword1:

Quote from: chavarlison
somebody just sent me this
from = "e-gold"
date = Tue, 27 Sep 2005 22:49:13 -0400
body = Hello
Dear E-gold Account Holder
For your security we limited your account (2293099)
because we need your confirmation. so please by cliking here and complete the information raise any limitation
your account security code is : 99985547

they knew my name and account number. any body know what this is?

Hello chavarlison,

Yes, there are a lot of emails being sent in the name of Paypal, certain banks, egold, intgold, etc. However, these programs have said that they won't send you links like these via email.

Sometimes, hackers mimic a site for the purpose of capturing your login details.

If you just want to check your egold, you can log into their IP address,

If you want to check their certificate, it should contain this digital signature, E-gold certificate number: 587C C88D BAAB DFC3 FD81 BB2E 5B93 6931

The payment page of e-gold should look like something like this,

I said that it should look like this because, in the above link, there are ceratin data missing like,


Anyway, upon logging in to your account, you can send a copy of this email to them. If you can include the full headers there, it might help in clearing things up.

Hope that helps.

This page does not exist in e-gold, it may look like that only,
but underneath it is a different address altogether.

Phishing is a way of deceiving the person (you) so that you will trust
them and give out important details that the "phisher" will need to access your account.

There's even a FAKE e-gold website, spelled as
the small q looks like g, so you really wouldn't notice, it
almost looks genuine, but by looking at the properties you'll see
that it's not, some links actually go to e-gold site but when logging in,
a different virtual keyboard is used, and it can really get your passphrase
without you knowing it.

i found this on my non e-gold registered email address so i highly suspect its a phishing attack! i made a report to the e-gold administration regarding this and still waiting for an official response.

my suggestion is to NOT follow the link as it actually leads to a different UNSECURED url go only to the offiical website. always use the official srk application to make sure keyloggers won't be able to log your passphrase. also, i would urge e-gold account holders to report this to the e-gold admin (again at the official site only) then maybe something can be done to avert any unwanted results.

(e-mail in question copied below)

Make sure you have the e-gold access page bookmarked on your browser and use only that bookmark to login.

kaya ako lagi kong tinitingnan mabuti ung mga links kung san papunta.
pwede rin kasi ung URL masking, ibang page lalabas pero tama ung nasa
address bar mo, tapos ung hidden ung real link...
usually sa email copy&paste but not copy-shortcut kc un ung fake link
that you don't see...

Your correct guys, this URL link points to an unregistered domain and definitely not from E-gold site.

Better check your browsers, and always enable "View > Status Bar" so that you could easily see what site you'll be clicking....

The hacker is back with a new gimmick. Before, it is your email account that is in target, now it is your egold account. Got this email in my yahoo account:

Subject:   Notification of e-gold account update
From:  Add to Address BookAdd to Address Book  Add Mobile Alert
Date:   Sun, 05 Feb 2006 05:44:40 -0500

Account trouble

We are contacting You to remind You that on 5/2/2006 our Account Review Team identified some unusual
activity in Your account. In accordance with e-gold´s User Agreement and to ensure that Your account has
not been compromised, access to Your account was limited. Your account access will remain limited until
this issue has been resolved.

Please click on the link bellow and log in to Your account:

Please do not reply to this automatically generated email message.

What is funny here is that, it's not my yahoo account that I used in my e-gold account. bakit dun nya ako ino-notify? hahahaha!

Then when you look from your status bar kung saan kayo dadalhin ng link, it is from the same person who is trying to hack your yahoo account.

repapips baka dun sa hyip na sinalihan mo, assuming sila na yung email na binigay mo sa kanila dun naka tag yung e-gold account mo.  kaya

pag sali sa hyip:
1. use a different name
2. use a different email that is not tag with your e-gold account.
3. use a different passwords for your email, e-gold account and hyips.  Copy and paste yung mga passwords sa isang text file o kaya naman sa isang password protected na excel file para sa mga keyloggers.

minsan naman dun sa mga hyip na sinasalihan natin binebenta yung mga info pag hindi gaano kumita yung mga scammers.  Usually parami ng parami spam mo kapag palaging sumasali sa mga hit and run.
