In a scam doing the rounds in France, many people are receiving an authentic looking email asking them if they are having difficulty connecting to their Facebook Account.

Look out for scam emails about the Vitale V3 card with the Service-public.fr or Ameli logo  inviting you to download a form to obtain the new card  within 24 hours.

READER’S WARNING
Just wanted to let you know that a similar scam arrived on my laptop from “proscan28online” pretending to be Microsoft technical support and freezing the computer.

It could be a #pingcall, in which you are connected to an international hotline which charges just for connecting, along with high per-minute fees for as long as they can keep you talking. Caller ID will look as if the call is coming from 01, 02, 04 etc instead of the expensive 0 899. These charges will show up on your bill as premium services. (surtaxée.)
