The Acting Director of the FBI is not a scammer

This is an amusing spam scam, if only because it’s so poorly written. Mr. Andrew McCabe, the Acting Director of the FBI, is certainly not behind this scam. Also, the FBI doesn’t send emails using Cyber Internet Services Private Ltd. in Pakistan, or refer people to Nigerian banks, or pay people via ATM card.

If you receive messages like this, don’t respond — simply delete them.

Sorry, spammers, but James Comey is no longer FBI Director

This is a generally unremarkable spam message except for the obvious. James Comey was fired as the Director of the FBI on May 9. That makes it unlikely that Mr. Comey can deliver the promised $1.2 million. Bummer.

The missing spaces are just the way they were in the message. I do like the comment about things being in the spam folder. Let’s blame the Internet Service Provider!!

If you get messages like this, delete them – don’t reply.

Lordy, I hope there are tapes

I received this awesome tech spam message today from LaserVault. (It’s spam because it went to my company’s info@ address).

There’s only one thought: “Lordy, I hope there are backup tapes.”

Free White Paper: Is A Tape-Related Data Disaster In Your Future?

Is a tape-related data disaster in your future? It may be if you currently use tape for your backup and recovery.

This paper discusses the many risks you take by using tape and relying on it to keep your data safe in case of a disaster.

Read how you can better protect your data from the all too common dangers that threaten your business, and learn about using D2D technology, specifically tape emulation, instead of tape for iSeries, AIX, UNIX, and Windows.

This white paper should be required reading for anyone involved in overseeing their company’s tape backup operations.

Ha ha ha ha ha. I slay me.

Stop contacting the other lying spammers!

A little reverse psychology, eh? Don’t worry, trying to get this faux fortune will only cost you $450 from the spammers… or maybe more. Interesting that the name of the contact, Mr.James Richard, has the same spacing throughout, which is a telltale sign of either a bad copy/paste or a machine-generated form letter.

Delete messages like this; don’t reply to them.

Great News, YOU ARE ADVISED TO STOP CONTACTING THEM!!!

I am Mrs. CYNDY BANKS, I am a US citizen, 42 years Old. I reside here in Spring City, Pennsylvania. My residential address is as follows. 3663 Schuylkill Rd# 1, Spring City, Pennsylvania, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Troy Illinois many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $52,000 while in the United States trying to get my payment all to no avail.

I decided to travel down to Troy Illinois with all my compensation documents and i was directed to meet Mr.James Richard he is among the member of the COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake because the Inheritance/Compensation Law clearly states that the beneficiary/recipient is exempt from paying any out of pocket fees or charges to receive said funds.

Mr.James Richard took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $9,500,000.00 (nine million five hundred thousand dollars).

Moreover, Mr.James Richard showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name and email address as one of the beneficiaries that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your funds, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Mr.James Richard you have to contact him directly on this information below.

COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE

Name: Mr.James Richard

Email:james.richard1155@gmail.com

Listed below are the name of mafias and banks behind the non release of your funds that I managed to sneak out for your kind perusal.

19) Barr. Becky Owens

20) Rev. Steven Jones

21) Mr. Alfred james

22) Mrs. Sherry Williams

23) Mr. Scott Larry

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing. The only money I paid after I met Mr.James Richard was just $450 for the delivery charges, take note of that.

(NOTE: TELLING YOU TO PAY FOR ANY DELIVERY OR COURIER CHARGE IS ALL NOTHING BUT LIES, I REPEAT THE ONLY MONEY YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY AND WHICH I ALSO PAID IS $450 FOR THE DELIVERY CHARGES IMPOSED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND YOUR PACKAGE CONTAINING YOUR CERTIFIED BANK DRAFT CHEQUE WILL BE REACHING YOU THROUGH THE EXPRESS COURIER SERVICE).

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Mr.James Richard so that he can help you to deliver your funds instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.

Why am I being spammed by the American Bar Association?

IANAL — I am not an attorney. I’ve never studied law, or even been inside a law school. I have a cousin who is an attorney, and quite a few close friends. But IANAL.

So why am I on the American Bar Association’s email list? I am not a member of the ABA. Why are they sending me a credit-card offer? It boggles the mind. One would assume that the ABA is not so desperate for funds that it would have to rent mailing lists to spam with credit-card offers.

And it’s not like I could sue them, right? Sigh.

Oooh, it’s my first scam spam citing the Trump Administration

This is a great piece of unclaimed-money spam. Normally I redact the email addresses – but these are far too juicy to censor, especially the “from” address. Merely because the spam links to a genuine web page, such as this bio for Secretary Mnuchin or a report about Saddam Hussein from the BBC, doesn’t make the email itself valid. In this case, it’s certainly not valid. (And please hold the snarky comments about government officials using non-government email accounts.)

When you receive messages like this, delete them. Never reply, even to ask to unsubscribe or to berate the scammer, because that indicates to the scammers that they’ve found a valid email address, and demonstrates you actually read spam messages. That makes you much more valuable, so you’ll receive even more scammy spams.

New phishing scam referencing a company called FrontStream

We received this realistic-looking email today claiming to be from a payment company called FrontStream. If you click the links, it tries to get you to active an account and provide bank details. However… We never requested an account from this company. Therefore, we label it phishing — and an attempt to defraud.

If you receive a message like this, delete it. Don’t click any of the links, and don’t reply to it either. You’ve been warned.

Phishing and ransomware attacks against you and your company are getting smarter

Everyone has received those crude emails claiming to be from your bank’s “Secuirty Team” that tells you that you need to click a link to “reset you account password.” It’s pretty easy to spot those emails, with all the misspellings, the terrible formatting, and the bizarre “reply to” email addresses at domains halfway around the world. Other emails of that sort ask you to review an unclothed photo of a A-list celebrity, or open up an attached document that tells you what you’ve won.

We can laugh. However, many people fall for those phishing scams — and willingly surrender their bank account numbers and passwords, or install malware, such as ransomware.

Less obvious, and more effective, are attacks that are carefully crafted to appeal to a high-value individual, such as a corporate executive or systems administrator. Despite their usual technological sophistication, anyone can be fooled, if the spearphishing email is good enough – spearphishing being the term for phishing emails designed specifically to entrap a certain person.

What’s the danger? Plenty. Spearphishing emails that pretend to be from the CEO can convince a corporate accounting manager to wire money to an overseas account. Called the “Wire Transfer Scam,” this has been around for several years and still works, costing hundreds of millions of dollars, said the FBI.

Why does the FTC spammer have an email address at my domain?

This is a good one. The spam message was short and sweet:

The words “FTC Subpoena” were hyperlinked to a server in Vietnam. Ha ha ha. I’m sure the Federal Trade Commission has document servers in the U.S., perhaps with a .gov top-level domain. If that wasn’t bad enough, however, why was the alleged senior accountant using an email address at camdenassociates.com, which is my own domain? My bet is that the spammers thought that Camden Associates is a huge company, and perhaps I’d think that Richard was one of my employees? Uh, no.

Don’t click on links in messages like this, and don’t reply either. Simply delete them, or mark as spam (to help train your email system).

Hackers and scammers and spammers, oh my

An alarming message came in today from a cousin’s email address — and freaked out some members of my extended family. However, it’s a total scam. Someone hacked in my cousin’s email address (either by guessing her password or by phishing for it) and sent out these messages. One worried family member actually went to the bank to get cash to send to London!
Subj: Horrible Trip
 
Hello,
 
This message may be coming to you as a surprise but I need your help.Few days back my family and I made an unannounced vacation trip to London,UK.Everything was going fine until last night when we were mugged on our way back to the hotel.They Stole all our cash,credit cards and cellphone but thank God we still have our lives and passport.Another shocking thing is that the hotel manager has been unhelpful to us for reasons i don’t know. I’m writing you from a local library cybercafe..I’ve reported to the police and after writing down some statements that’s the last i had from them.i contacted the consulate and all i keep hearing is they will get back to me. Our return flight leaves soon…I need you to help me out with a loan to settle our bills here so we can get back home . I’ll refund the money as soon as we get back. All i need is $1,850 USD..Let me know if you can get me the money then I will let you know how to get it to me.
 
Thanks
Needless to say, my cousin is safe at home, and she never went to London. She was initially somewhat confused because she couldn’t get into her email, as one of the first things the scammers did was change her password. And then the phone started ringing….
If you see messages like this, don’t respond, don’t be fooled. Do not try to get back to the family member by email, but use other means. Remember, the scammer has access to the email account, and can answer. Being bcc’d on a message (which I was) is one sign that it’s not legit. (But if you’re not bcc’d, that’s not proof that the message is legitimate.)

The old “I left my money in a taxi” ploy

Oh, this poor person! It’s a good thing that he/she didn’t lose his/her mobile phone or laptop as well. Otherwise, how could he/she send me this heart-rending cry for help?

Fortunately, I know that Adobe’s HR department will take this as seriously as I do. Let’s hope the Hotel doesn’t seize his/her bag before someone pays the bill! Maybe we should hook this person up with the widow of a deposed dictator or someone like that.

If for some reason this request for money sounds plausible, try to contact your friend via phone. Alternatively verify with other friends that he/she is indeed overseas. If the situation can’t be verified, don’t reply to the message; simply delete it.
