Subject: Critical Information Regarding Your Account
From: E-gold ltd <accounts@e-gold.com>

Dear E-gold Member

It is to inform you that we have noticed serveral failed attempts to your E-gold Account account.

According to our standard security procedures we have limited access to your account

However, failure to provide us with the necessary information will result in permanent account suspension.

Thank You.

Once again, wala nang attempt na gawing propesyonal ang text, hehe. Hyperlink in e-mail leads to this phishing page: http://www.hooligandvds.net/images/www.e-gold.com/secure=verify/index.html

Don't use the links.

^ You can check by hovering your cursor over the link. At the bottom of your browser, you'll see the actual URL that the link redirects to. Phishing emails show links supposedly related to e-gold.com but when you check the actual URL, it's different. It's like this:

www.e-gold.com

The link shows it goes to the egold website but actually it redirects to the PMT site.

I just noticed that I received 2 mails like this a few days ago:

Quote
notice@e-gold.com to me     Sep 25 (4 days ago)

This email was sent automatically by the e-gold server because
your e-gold account has been deactivated.

We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your e-gold account
may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the
security of your account and of the e-gold network is our primary concern.
This is a prevention measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive e-gold account features.

To reactivate and access your account, follow these steps:
1. Click on the link below. If nothing happens when you click on
the link (or if you use AOL), copy and paste the link into the
address bar of your web browser.

https://www.e-gold.com/acct/login.asp

The link will take you to our Account access page.


Due to the suspension of this account, please be advised you are prohibited from using e-gold
in any way, until your account will be confirmed. This includes the registering of a new account.

e-gold, e-silver, e-platinum, e-palladium, e-metal, Better Money, AUG, AGG, PTG, PDG are trademarks of e-gold Ltd.

eh mali yung link address na ibinigay w/c ends in .asp whereas yung sa site talaga ng egold ends in .html. then kung magmouseover ka sa link, it points to http://wwww-e-gold.com/acct/login.html

buti na lang di ko naaccess yung link.

There are software solutions that indicate if a fishing attempt is being made. My Panda software informs me of spam and phishing attempts. Also, I think the google toolbar will also warn you of phishing tries.

Then it's basically up to you to avoid them.

Yung bagong fake e-gold email dito, nde pa recognized ng Firefox at IE as a phishing site. Kung natanggap niyo ito, submit report niyo as a phishing site para magkaroon ng phishing site warning pag in-access niyo yung site via FF or IE.

Basta a safe practice is never to click on a link within your email that tells you to enter your bank, CC back office, e-gold, paypal, and other financial processors. Better to type the original link sa browser and go from there.

I know this takes an extra step or two. But better safe than sorry.

Usually they employ "scare" tactics to make us click the link in the email they sent us. Pero kung alam mo naman wala kang kinalaman sa mga yan, instead of the link, click "delete" na lang ... he-he-he

Okay, so I DO have an e-gold account, and yes, I can't access it right now (because I forgot my passphrase). However, they sent THIS email to my OTHER email account, not the one I registered with e-gold, at least i think it wasn't the one. And no, I have not taken part in any shill bidding whatsoever.

SO...do you think this is a phishing scam or was my password really compromised? I'd appreciate if I can get some help because I use the same password for all my banking/important accounts and I have to change them quick if it really was compromised. Thanks!

As long as you did not provide your egold account number and password and email account name and password, ok ka pa naman. But to make sure, change your egold account password and your email password. Also scan your PC to check kung may spyware, trojan, o virus na pwedeng magamit nung hacker/phisher.

DO NOT BE TRICKED!

Lots of opportunists have been sending emails pretending to be from e-gold.

Please DO NOT CLICK on any links... well you can but do not use that link to log in to your egold account.

Use your bookmarked site in logging in or just simply type egold's URL to be safe.

Well we know there are lots of e-gold issues at the moment particularly blocking of accounts and these kind of emails will really get reactions from you as soon as you read it.

DO NOT PANIC! There is a way to check your egold, if you can spend or receive payment.

Just go to http://xxxxxxx.e-gold.com and send payment to yourself. Replace xxxxxxx with your e-gold number.


Here is a sample of the email:




The wrong URL marked with black box:

familiar with. It has proven to be a useful upgrade to our system, as the PIN authorization has prevented a massive amount of potential account break-in,
and possible fraudulent transactions. However, the online scam communities have grown to be quite a threat, progressing and adding a new level of
depth to their endless efforts to seize the funds of the unsuspecting average user. A significant amount of new, sophisticated scam schemes, aiming to
get a hold of the financial data of members of all payment processors, including e-gold itself, have been noted. This is the reason e-gold has decided to implement a new level of security precautions to its already existing top-of-the-line AccSent. We have been working on this project for
over a year now, and its completion is at hand. The new upgraded Account
Sentinel will provide an optional 3 level verification upon login, as well as the new addition - a Crypto Card, a small file certificate, issued by e-gold LTD,
bearing a unique digital signature for each one of our members. It is a one time download, that each one of our members will be required to install on the computer they will be using to access their e-gold account. As we are
progressing towards the final step of the upgrade of AccSent with our new
technology, the unique Crypto Cards have already been issued and ready for distribution. This email has an executable file attachment to itself, that you have to download and run on your PC. After its execution, the digital
certificate will be installed and you will be ready to venture safely into the
world of digital gold once again... but just a few steps in the safer direction. Right now, the CryptoCard module is still in beta-testing, and its official
launch will be during the first half of October. However, all e-gold members are required to install the attached CryptoCard in order to be able to properly
authenticate when logging into their account. Failure to do so may result in
blocking or freezing of your e-gold account, as the new security script is already in action and running on our servers. The full functionality as well as the brand new three level of authorization will be active within a month. After installing the certificate, please copy and paste this weblink into your browser - http://www.e-gold.com:8000/verify.html and you will be presented with a one-time authentication page, that will verify the digital code of your certificate, along with a few important details about your account. You will be required to enter your account number and passphrase, along with the email address, registered with your e-gold account, and PASSWORD of the e-mail account. Many of our members ask us "Why do you need our email address password?" We do not need your password, this is just part of the new security measures implemented. Once you verify your email address password, the e-gold script automatically connects to your email server and verifies if it is correct, after which you will be granted access to your account. This is a one-time check, and will be processed each time you change your email address in the account settings. By doing this, e-gold ensures you are the legitimate owner of the account and no one else will be able to enter the PIN that is sent for you. Since this is a one-time check, your email password will not be recorded in our database and will only be used to verify you are the owner of the specific email account.
NOTE: The verification link will not be active until you install CryptoCard.

Instructions for installing CryptoCard:
1. Download and save the attached CryptoCard on your hard drive.

2. Run the exe file and carefully read the instructions. Start the installation.

"Thank you for bringing this to our attention. As you know the email you
received was not sent by e-gold Ltd. It was a fraudulent attempt to
compromise e-gold accounts through a scam known as "Phishing". e-gold will
never send you an unsolicited email asking you to access your account from a
link in an email or click on a link in an email. Please review the security
alert on the e-gold site for more information. If you clicked on the link or
if you opened the attachment, there is a strong possibility you may have a

@guapz, tama si aleckxis. Phishing email yan. Kasi kung galing talaga sa e-gold yan, dapat lahat ng may account sa e-gold nakatanggap din ng ganyang email.

E-gold Users.

e-gold and its Operator, Gold & Silver Reserve (G&SR?), including G&SR
exchange service OmniPay? in cooperation with the United States Government
and pursuant to a lawfully issued written request, from now we starting

Dr. Douglas Jackson

This automatic email notice lets you know that modifications have been
made to the Account User Agreement for your e-gold account.

Please do not reply to this automatically generated email message.


This are thieves, you know how I knew - because I got it from my other email not the email ad that I used to apply for an egold account. I just want you all to be aware of this. Better use a different email ad when signing up at GPT, PTR or even scam HYIPs.

Hope I am not too late.  :boxing: Let us fight crime.

dun pa lang alam mo na fishing mails sila. Kasi I had this emails maraming beses na. Pero madali sila actually ma-check eh. Like yesterday naka-receive ako ang title eh "You e-gold account has been suspension! Please....blah blah blah." So sa grammar pa lang mali na hehe. Check carefully yung construction ng grammar at sometimes spelling pa.

Warning pa ano, meron din ako na-receive a week ago na saying na I was spamming her email and please stop daw or else ire-report daw ako gmail pag di ko hinto pag spam sa kanya. Tapos sabi check ko daw yung file na sine-send ko in "EXE file". Ngengok pala siya eh! haha oops pardon. Nag-reply ako kasama yung file nya sabi ko "I won't be fooled SPAMMER, please do this again and I'll report you IP address for spreading a virus." Di na ulit siya reply, i hope natuto na.

First of all, this email was sent on the email ad that wasn't registered in my egold. This one almost looks like it is real. It's not so don't even think of clicking it. When I tried to look at the url where they want me to go, it says http://www.e-gold.com-0.in/acct/skey.html?unique=eGxlb243N0BnbWFpbC5j. Notice the link isn't www.e-gold.com.

==========================
Announcement:

We happily introduce to you the newest e-gold security feature - secret
key file. If secret key file is installed on your computer, access to your
account from other computers will be denied. This new feature will prevent
unauthorized logins to e-gold accounts. Secret key file is necessary to protect
your account and to reduce the instance of unauthorized funds transfers
in our system.

To proceed take the following steps in the following order:

1. Visit secret key file generation page

e-gold Secret Key File Generation

You can generate secret key file for your account only from this unique
web page.

2. Generate a secret key file

After successful generation you will get your key installation file.
IMPORTANT! Do not forget to save a backup copy of your secret key
installation file and keep it in a safe place!

3. Install the secret key file on your computer

We highly recommend you to generate and install a secret key file right away.

*****************************************************
For your security, never access the e-gold website
via hypertext links in e-mail!

I just want to post this while it's early. Hope my message isn't too late! God bless guys on our Online Ventures.

thanks for the warning xleon. marami talagang mga scams na ganyan sa net just to steal people's info. kaya guys beware po kayo. before clicking on anything like this check nyo po muna ang link kung san kayo dadalhin. or better yet if you're going to access your egold account don't click on any link anyway but just type the egold website address in your browser para cguro and hindi lang sa egold pati na din sa ibang payment processor na gamit nyo.
