Warning! Fake Job Opportunity emailsBe aware that there are a number of obviously fake non-English job "opportunities" emails floating around currently. I must have received a couple of dozen over the weekend!

Most appear to be in German and the subject of at least one was " Karriere Wachstum" (Career Growth).

The content (when translated) is along the lines of

We are looking for employees who want to work from home.
My name is Andrew and I am the HR manager of a large, international company.

Warning! Legally Binding Documents - Fake emailsA number of infected emails seem to be circulating this evening, with a subject of " Your Legally Binding Contract document is ready for signature!" They start off with that "Your Amending Agreement ### " (the number given is different each time and requests that you review an agreement by clicking the Review Document link in the email. The sending domain seems to be sign{dot}com.

They go on to say that the document contains a secure link to DocuSign and it shouldn't be shared with...


I thought at first that this was a fake email from Louis Vitton, but that's what the scammers want you to think. It is in fact not from them nor is it from Louis Vuitton but was in fact sent from Erika {at} lvboston{.}top with a subject of (My name), Your Order Status and sent to an email address that doesn't actually have my name associated with it. So, I'm going to guess that someone who uses this email and knows me has their computer infected with malware.

As can be seen above, the email...


Warning Starofservice Music Lesson eMailsDon't know what this guy is up to but have received a series of emails from "Harry Rowling" alledgedly of starofservice{.}co{.}uk asking me to click a link to confirm a job request for music lessons. In fact the link is spoofed to a very long actual link that whilst it points to links{.}starofservice{.}com does not fill me with any confidence that this is in any way genuine!

Three links in the third email, alledgedly the same, all have different spoofed long links!

As always, NEVER click...


Fake Amazon Gift Card emailsJust received an obviously fake email alledgedly from Amazon UK informing me that I have received a £50 Gift Card for Amazon as it is "Today is Amazon anniversary and we are celebrating our holiday by giving our loved friends" which can be "Redeeme" by clicking the link in the email. And of course, the link is NOT amazon, but rather points to my-amazon...

The grammar used in this email is an obvious give away that it is fake and will no doubt infect your computer if the link is...


Warning! Fake DropBox emailsBe aware that there are fake DropBox emails circulating. With a subject title of Delivery failed and the message starts off with

Dear dropbox user,
You have received a new document from (in this case, a non-existing email account from one of my own domains) and contains a link to View the Document.
This link is NOT to dropbox as one would expect and the email itself is in fact sent from  dropbos{dot}com.
 

Warning! Fake Sales Order EmailsBe aware that there are yet more fake eMails floating around, this time they are alledgedly coming from Outbue plc (whoever they are) with a subject of "Sales Order" and a number.

The content has "Payment transferred to Pacific Wholesale Distributors this morning for $" the amount will no doubt vary from fake email to fake email. If you view the email in outlook or any web based email reader that shows images etc, then there are tracking images that report back to the senders that the email...


Warning! Fake UPS Shipments infected emailReceived a number of fake UPS Shipments emails today, basically saying that they have tried to deliver to me today, but there was no one available to sign for this mystery package.

"We deposited your parcel at our office and we've left notice in your mailbox. You can claim your package, by coming to our office with a hard copy of the delivery notice we left in your mailbox. The missed delivery notice can also be viewed online" and of course the online link is to (several different) hacked...


Warning! Fake DocuSign eMailsFake emails advising that you have a document available for signature are floating around. They have a subject of "Your document Receipt ##### for {email prefix) is ready for signature!" and have a link to REVIEW DOCUMENT which in one case at least links to a Canadian website, probably hacked and containing software that will infect your computer by your simply visiting it! As with all of these fake emails, never click on a link in an email you are not expecting and simply delete them...
