Comments: When you send out malware intended to infect recipients’ computers, is that classified as a scam or just plain heinous behavior? The attached document was entitled, “375574.doc”. The smart thing to do with documents like this is to delete them and forward the message to your service provider’s abuse department.


Dear Sirs,

Kindly find attached our reminder and copy of the relevant invoices.
Looking forward to receive your prompt payment and thank you in advance.

Kind regards
Inez Moran

Comments: This scam came with an attached html form that the scammer hopes you fill out, probably so that he/she can get your password. In as much as many people use the same passwords for various services, this has the potential to open up the keys to the kingdom. Having never banked with this bank I would be very surprised indeed if this were anything but a scam. I googled the bank, found their contact form, sent a messsage notifying them of the scam. Let’s see if they care. I also forwarded a copy to McAfee for them to have fun with. The attached email form was named: NOTICE Standard Bank Amount Due R 521.99.htm.

Comments: If I had a dollar for every spammer who attempted to sell me junk without taking the time to figure out who I am and whether or not my business was a good candidate for their ‘stuff’, I would be filthy rich. The problem with doing business this way is that it’s a bad business model. You are always better off researching your potential customers first to find out if there is a service match, then once you know who they are approach them on a personal level, not by sending out the same spam message as the other thousands on your spam list. Other than the fact that they claim to be one of the best, how do you qualify the claim?

From: Priyanka singh <priyanka.contentjack@outlook.com>
Comments: OMG! It’s another “Hi, Hope you are doing well.” emailed addressed to someone with apparently no name, me. Does this spammer who knows nothing about me really care about the state of my health? A bonified SEO specialist will never offer a guarantee, so what’s different here that true experts have missed? Could it be an interpretation of what a top 10 ranking is, perhaps the difference between Organic rankings and Pay Per Click or maybe some other nuance that the reader doesn’t understand? Do your self a favor and hire a local expert whom you can track down when things go south.


Hi,

Hope you are doing well.

I would appreciate your response on my mail below. Do let me know if you are interested and I would be happy to take this further.

Comments: And they say idiots don’t grow on trees? Well, I beg to differ. This scammer failed to attach the scam message before clicking send. Even with regard to scammers you might say, “there’s one born every day.”

Comments: Spam is a huge problem. Apparently aside from the ordinary spammers who harvest email addresses off the internet we have those such as these who are openly promoting the sale of a list. They’re not particularly bright either. This was sent to an unpublished email address that I occasionally use to sign up for accounts when I don’t want to use my real email address. Incidentally, it used to be that you could purchase documents such as “Your Metro Area Business Report” to obtain a lot of company info such as is named here. I wonder if it’s legal to sell/resell as this spammer is doing.

Comments: Oh gosh, it’s another Final Warning to take action and get engaged in this scam! What should I do?

From: nirdesh singh <singhseoandwebsolutions@hotmail.com>
Comments: I suppose that I should feel blessed that my business is the target of spammers such as this one. The bottom line, however, is that they are spammers who don’t take the time to learn who or what you are before filling your email with their off-target dribble. I see they claim to be a leading result oriented Web Solutions company in another country. How is their claim relevant to anything? Other than hearing it from a spammer, where would I go to qualify their claim?
