NortonLifeLock Email Scam: Subscription Pending
Watch out for a new NortonLifeLock Email Scam happening these days. It is a “NortonLifeLock Security 1 Year Subscription Pending” message which asks recipients to call a phone number. The one used in the original NortonLifeLock scam was 1-888-481-2106, but rest assured by now, there could be many others. Check the comments section too, for more feedback from victims.
The senders attempt to trick their potential victims into sending them a lot of money for a fake Norton subscription. Their quest is successful because many people are not even aware of their computer anti-virus/protection systems.
