Scam Alert: Welcome to YouTube

There is a Welcome to YouTube (confirmation) email going around that sends people to a bogus site (http:// sonda. co. kr / index2.html  – do not click it if you are unprotected) which has nothing to do with YouTube.

Everything else on the email LOOKS like it is legit… but it is NOT!

If you did NOT subscribe then DELETE THE EMAIL IMMEDIATELY! Do NOT click on ANY links

I have in my whitelist so that’s why it got through to me.

Here is what it looks like (image only)

YouTube - Welcome to YouTube-SCAM

You have been warned!

Here’s the header sent to ME  (Sean Riminez is not me! but does get thru to me though.)
