Real Casio e-mail or scam?
« on: September 26, 2011, 05:49:46 pm »
Hi,

I got two Casio e-mails recently, such as one telling me to tell about my Prizm on Facebook now. However, it leads to mk2.netatlantic.com links instead of Casio ones. I wonder if anyone got them and if they know it's safe or not? Is it like TI and just a random site Casio uses to manage e-mail subscriptions?

It seems there were images in the e-mail too but I did not want to enable them, in case. Anyone knows if it's safe or not? I had something similar happening with TI before, but it turned out to be a newsletter. It has a casio email address, but I heard about email spoofing, before. Eg I received spam from [email protected] before.

I wouldn't trust it
One of those mails, just something about giftcards came to my email account
I clicked it, it shut my computer down, and I had to spend 100+ dollars instead of getting 100 dollars lol

Got it as well, looked at the images and clicked the links, looks pretty legit.

CASIO must use netatlantic.com for their newsletter stuff, it goes to some website about sending newsletters. Which is pretty legit for me.

I see, then I guess I'm fine then. I am careful when the link doesn't lead to the original company, because of what DualBDLR said.
