Fake Facebook, YouTube, and Skype missed notifications

My inbox is full lately.  The spammers are ramping up their efforts through the holiday season because they think we’ll fall for the strange offers and notifications because of holiday brain.  Let’s prove them wrong.

In addition to the usual lottery and job scams, missed Skype, YouTube, and Facebook messages are the main topics.  The messages are short and include a link to the fake site the scammer wants you to log in on.

Here are some of the ones I’ve received.
