Scam E-mail Using McDonalds Name to Target Kiwis

Phishing e-mail purporting to be from McDonald was circulating on April 15, 2009 in New Zealand’s cyber space, according to the computer security specialists.

Accordingly, McDonald has been getting complaints from people concerned about the e-mail and website that promise users $50 reward for participating in an online survey and sharing their private information, particularly credit card numbers.

A spokeswoman representing the fast-food outlet have said that the same scam made the rounds nearly a month back, but that wasn’t so far reaching and sophisticated. In that, the scammers didn’t even know the correct spelling of New Zealand.
