Warning – Do Not Click on Unsubscribe Links
For years it has been drummed in to people not to click on links in emails unless they are sure what the link is and now here we are with people randomly clicking on unsubscribe links which until opened could be going anywhere.
See an example here – Example Link
Warning Do Not Click on Unsubscribe Links Without Knowing What They Are
Next time you receive an email from someone you don’t really recognise asking you to unsubscribe to something you don’t really remember ever subscribing to – Be careful
In fact, even if you receive an email from a company you know, be careful, it’s easy to make an email look as though it is from someone else and due to the fact unsubscribe links are using shortened URLs, tracking URLs, etc. it is almost impossible to know what the link is until you click it.
People clicking on unsubscribe links sounds like a spammers or scammers paradise.
Did you? – let me know in the comments if you did 😉
