McAfee fake e-mails

I receive at least 8-10 e-mails from McAfee daily telling me that my product license has expired. These seem to be robo generated and most come in from an omimicrosoft account. If you are using this technique to push your product--shame on you. If you are not responsible but do not have any control over the use of your brand name on the internet---shame on you.

Because of this, I would never ever think of using your product!!

Re: McAfee fake e-mails

I have the same problem; I suspect this is a widespread spoofing scam.

I agree and support all of the comments of the message thread originator.

McAfee needs to treat this situation with upmost importance and urgency. Failure to do so constitutes at least negligence and more likely gross negligence.

Get this fixed, McAfee, before your legal and public relations departments become embroiled in this matter…

Re: McAfee fake e-mails

I've been receiving these e-mails and pop up notifications for months now. I run complete scans with McAfee in hopes that they have figured a way to get this crap off of one of their protected devices but, alas, no luck.  I've had McAfee for years but next time my subscription expires, FOR REAL, I'm going back to Norton.
