130 Anniversario Coca Cola
“130 Anniversario Coca Cola” is a highly dangerous virus of the Trojan horse family and it is known for getting distributed through fake online messages and misleading spam emails. Scammers oftentimes use the name of “130 Anniversario Coca Cola” to scare potential victims into paying a ransom but some scammers do indeed spread the virus.
Spam e-mail campaigns are everywhere and no matter how hard you may try to escape them, you will inevitably end up receiving an occasional spam letter in your e-mail inbox every now and then. Of course, most of the spam letters you may receive will typically be more of an annoyance rather than any actual threat to your computer’s safety. However, this may not always be the case as there are actually some rather sketchy and potentially malicious spam e-mail campaigns out there and if you become one of their many targets, it’s important to know how to react.
One very infamous form of web spam is the one where the user is sent a phishing e-mail that tells them one of the most popular schemes related to the distribution of Coca Cola 130th anniversary Giveaway in particular is on a “Coca Cola Free Mini Refrigerator” contest in which participants will allegedly receive a free mini fridge. The scam has been spreading manically on social networks WhatsApp and Facebook. The ‘130 Anniversario Coca Cola’ scam entices and invites potential victims to visit spam and fake survey websites, which aims to get consumers to purchase unwanted products or services and disclose their personal information to be used fraudulently. Blocking the credit/debit card of the user is also a possible threat that the scammers may make in order to extort money from their victims.
If you’ve been getting targeted by this type of unnerving online letters, we must let you know that paying the money demanded of you is probably the last thing you should do. For all you know, there may be no virus in your system (and there probably isn’t). And, in case you have actually had a Trojan (like the new “130 Anniversario Coca Cola” Trojan) attack your computer, a much better way of dealing with it would be to follow our guide.
