Habbo Email scam “Habbo user Selwyn sent you a message”

Habbo Hotel Email Phishing Scam targeting Habbo users
Following Habbo hitting the news-headlines this week, we have seen numerous examples of unsolicited email appearing to be from Habbo with the subject line “Habbo user “Selwyn” has sent you a message“. Another example of the same has subject line “Habbo user “Adrian” has sent you a message

Habbo is a social networking site aimed at teenagers.

The spammed-out email invites the recipient to follow the link in the mail to open the message send by the Habbo user.

On closer inspection of the link, it will take you to a website in Russia which has nothing to do with Habbo.

Do not click on any of the links in the email. Just delete the email.

Unless you are a member of Habbo and expect to get emails from them, the safest thing to do is to is block all email with “Habbo” in the subject line. If you are a member, log in the usual way without clicking on the link.
