Solved Is this a safe email on Viber

April 14, 2019 at 06:24:14
Specs: Windows 10, Intel Core i3 7100U @ 2.40GHz
I regularly use Viber and Whatsapp to communicate from Belgium with Ethiopia. Now i received a message that my mobile number has been selected as the winner of 500,000 US$$. I have to send a code they gave me to info@vibernet.online.

I assume this is a fishing mail. I received it on my phone as a messageAlso I have never answered to a request to participate in a lottery. Is there a safe way to check this email address ? Without being open to be infected with malware ?

Somehting like TotalVirus or my Bitdefender Total Security 2019 ?

Thank you

Don't waste your time, effort, or even risk it... It's spam/junk or even worse...

Delete it and then scan your computer afterwards - just to be sure you haven't already inadvertently acquired something nasty...

Run Bitdefender - free version will be fine. And also run an freebie online scanner too - Trend Housecall is one that comes to mind and I think there are a couple of others too.

Think about it. Would some firm select anyone to hand out money to who had not already partaken in something? What would be in it for them unless they want to go bust fast. As per trvlr don't ever waste your time on this sort of junk. It's most probably dangerous.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Following Johnw , because my question was about how to check safely on a probable fishing mail. i searched with google on: info@vibernet.online --> the result:

You are about to log in to the site "vibernet.online" with the user name "info", but the web site does not require authentication. This may be an attempt to trick you.

Is "vibernet.online" the site you want to visit?

Commonly known as a re-direct. Avoid all that sort of stuff like the plague,
