    Re: Post up and share your examples of spam phishing emails messages #scamaware

    I had the attached (and clearly scam) e-mail supposedly form Virgin Media, my broadband supplier.

    I knew instantly it was a scam as the address it came from was not Virgin but bjtalsma[at]shaw.ca, although I suspect that some people do fall for it. But when I called Virgin to report it they couldn't have been more disinterested in someone posing as themselves and attempting to rip off their customers. Asked if I should forward it to their security department they told me to simply ignore it.

    So thanks a bunch for taking your customers' security so seriously, Beardie.

      With all the scam emails i get the one thing that always gives them away 1st is the fact they do not know my name...its dear customer or something...
      The worst scam email is the type IMO from a friend who has had there computer hacked or scamed...I had an email from my accountant recently saying he was on holiday and been robbed, has major problems "its hell" as phone taken too with all money ,but as he has his computer with him he is emailing clients for help...could i send him some money so he and his family can try and enjoy the rest of there holiday, and he will repay me immediately when he comes back....What a clever scam...If I was close friends with my accountant or it was a friends computer affected then money may have been sent...well, obviously I would have rang them first but some may not thinking a friend is in need .

          Re: Post up and share your examples of spam phishing emails messages #scamaware


          Here is the letter from my accountant i recieved...it did get me thinking....

          Good Morning,




          I really hope you get this fast. I could not inform everyone about our trip to Manila, Philippines.My family and I came down here to Manila, Philippines for a short vacation unfortunately we got mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed, all cash, credit card and cell phones were stolen from us, but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.


          It's was a terrible experience..I am sorry if i got you at the wrong time, i have only very few people to run to now..I need to pay some outstanding bills and also take a cab to the airport. I have contacted my bank, but the best they can do is to mail a new card which will take 2 to 3 days to get here.


          Please let me know if you can help me out? I promise to make immediate refund when i get home.


          Regards,
          Martin

            Sorry the e mail from earlier has vanished, it was to do with subscribing to a scheme to invest in bit coins, there was a genuine looking disclaimer that any investment could be risky to "the volatile nature of this market" but like many others did not call me by name but as "Dear Friend".
            Haven't got any thing to invest but the last two I have received seem to have legitimate looking headers etc. I am suspicious enough to delete or report anything dodgy looking now.
            Never give up, Never surrender.

              I agree, especially when the emails appear to come from you! :scared:

              Hotmail accounts seem very prone to hacking, virtually all my friends with hotmail accounts have had them hacked some time between 2007 and last year, when I'd start receiving dozens of emails from "them", with links to all sorts of spammy sites.

              I've had my own domain since 2001 so never used hotmail, however, shortly after setting up my email address at that time, I had a very clever virus on my PC which picked up file names from my own files, then sent emails to some of my contacts, headed something like "this is the latest version" or "take a look at this after making changes".

              The emails all had a nasty zippy containing the virus as the attachment, which had been renamed to match one of the filenames on my computer. Several people got that file purporting to come from me, including my boss, with whom I wasn't in the best of terms at the time! :scared:

              Luckily I managed to alert everyone I knew about it after a friend and biz partner of mine got the email with the attachment "from me" and asked my what I wanted him to do with the file "I" had just sent him.

              I ALWAYS had an AV program running, but stopped using the big, mainstream ones (you know which ones I mean ) after they took over my system while still letting the nasties through.
