brizzybrad9@gmail.com phishing scammer

For awareness. Goes by the name of Jeff Brad. Same method as other lame scammers. He emailed me claiming to be interested in my watch. Followed up by sending a link which leads to a fake rolexforum login page.

I received the same message from the same guy. It's a pity. Another way how they do it, hunt for serial numbers, is by using a fake whatsapp. Don't be lazy to call the number, in most cases it is unavailable. already got three e-mails like this , just another one last night. Don't give your personal information via whatsapp, call the number it indicates, very likely it's a bogus, in my cases all of them were.

I just got emails from this clown as well. Sends a link that scrapes username and password with a link that looks like our TRF log in page. Log in doesn’t work then redirects to the real page. Stupidly, I fell for it. Passwords now reset. No evidence he has a username here.

WATCH OUT!
