Luxembourg has once again become the target of an email scam, but this time it is aimed at the country's mobile telephone operator Tango.

Luxembourg has once again become the target of an email scam, but this time it is aimed at the country's mobile telephone operator Tango.

An email resembling an official communication from Tango in French states that because of your loyalty with the phone operator, you are entitled to 85 euros.

Of course to claim this you have to click a link to complete a form.

Careful inspection of the email reveals that the entire message is actually an inset image and clicking on it anywhere will send to you a bogus address

At Wort.lu/en we've inspected the offending email and discovered is actually comes from the address: ameet-travel@tropicalbreaks.com

Obviously on no account click anywhere in the email and you should delete it immediately. 

Note that real emails from Tango generally come from the email address info@tango.lu or at least end in "@tango.lu" 

Below is a copy of the bogus email.
