Is this spam? Renewal to Windows defender

Was this sent to other Bitdefender users? A renewal to Windows defender for $399 annual, so that people click on the link? Seems like spam. I do not have windows defender. I was not charged.

  • Hello @Babadook789 and welcome to our Community.

    The message is spam and was not sent by Bitdefender, nor Microsoft (you can easily spot that in the name of the email adress). Don't click any links, don't input your private data or bank account and delete the email.

    Hello @Babadook789

    If you have never subscribed to Windows Defender and have not been charged in any way, this is most likely a scam and a phishing attempt: the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.

    Many of these fake messages contain spelling and grammatical errors as well as caps. This particular one is carefully written. The e-mail address also raises an eyebrow. It's a classic attempt where the scammers rely on momentum and the surprise element, because naturally people often tend to react when receiving messages related to payments out of the blue. So, they rely on the fact that the victim will send an e-mail to that addres or call the phone number in the description. From there, it's going down the rabbit hole.

    Stay safe.
