I received an email request from the alleged “Bob Wilson” requesting information and pricing for a part/product mentioned in one of our recent Red Square Blog Posts. After researching I found the exact same posts on other blogs in the same format as below. Whomever designed the script searches BLOGS, captures a PRODUCT NAME and an EMAIL ADDRESS, then automatically sends email request for purchase of product. THIS IS A SCAM / SPAM / BLAM!!!
See below for copy of SCAM email details….. Urgent Order
I have found that SCAM / SPAM / BLAM email’s often have the same RED FLAGS: poor punctuation, improper sentence structure, a sense of urgency, mention of credit card payment and NO Phone Number.
