New scam email going around

Just a quick note to tell people about a new scam.

You may get an email stating that Shaw is running a contest for a new cell phone and if you submit your credit card number, you can get one for $2. However, you will be charged on your credit card in Euros as this scam is running from Europe and you will also be charged $78, which is a subscription start-up cost. Do no respond to this email!

There are two websites involved: and This email is not from Shaw. You may get the cell phone, but you will only be able to access service through this subscription. Shaw has been informed of this.

If you have responded to this email and have been charged on your credit card, contact muscost immediately and tell them you wish to cancel, unsubscribe, and have the charges reversed. If they reply to your email, save the replies. You will also have to replace your existing credit card in case you receive another charge the following month and perhaps as long as five months as long as they can find a card in your name. Please be aware!
