Hello to all ! I am a new instructor and I have been bombarded by a fake Udemy support team promising you a promotion of your course with free coupons which for a new instructor may sound interesting . They use the logo and name of the real Udemy Support team but are in reality Russian scammers with English fake names sending you e-mails to your Udemy message board like the following:
( I hope you share this info with other instructors so they get not scammed. I have reported this to Udemy as it is an inner security issue but they still keep on sending e-mails to me so I guess they do the same to all new instructors !)
(For Udemy Security Team I have his Russian name which matchs with his Paypal account if you need it) Please take care !
SAMPLE OS THE FAKE E-MAIL:
