More Effort Required – D+

Filed under: Real Stuff — themangle @ 11:28 pm

After such an inventive effort yesterday from Tajikistan, today’s scam email I received was pathetic. If you want to convince punters that it’s a legitimate offer, you’ve really got to try a lot harder than this:

We are an Academy award Movie Production Company.In our salvaging Economic Recession crisis program, you are selected as our beneficiary From one of the 5 sales country to benefit $530.000.00,this is not a Lottery promotion.

To offset the cash to you send an email message to: <email address removed>

Do include: Your Full name, Occupation & Telephone number. To authenticate this, e-mail us.

For a start, where’s the florid language, the overly-detailed background as to why this fabulous quantity of money is suddenly available? There wasn’t even a proper subject line to the email, just “Re:”.

Then, there is no attempt to be clever with email addresses. The email alias uses a domain, the real email address is, and the email address they want punters to reply to is

This ain’t going to fool anyone … or … maybe this one is real??? Hmmmm.
