¿Cuál es el significado de SCAM, cuando hablamos de ciberataques? 

SCAM es una estafa realizada a través del correo electrónico que tiene por objetivo apoderarse de una cantidad de dinero de la víctima.

Cierto es que si se siguen enviando es debido a que, en algún lugar, alguien sigue cayendo en la trampa. ¡No seas tú!

Hace unos días, recibí un correo SCAM en el cual decía que soy beneficiaria de 56 millones de dólares, según la Reserva Federal del Distrito de Dallas. 

Por supuesto un SCAM siempre conlleva un falso correo. 

Hacía mucho tiempo que no recibía un correo SCAM, como el que se muestra a continuación, presta atención para no caer en el engaño.
