An invitation arrived by email to the radio station, apparently from Unilever. They are asking us to quote for supply of hospital ventilator machines. Yeah Right! Some scammer has gone to the trouble of buying domain name unileverglobalprocurments.com just for sending out these scam messages. Requests for tender that don’t match the products a business sells usually means the scammer is extremely lazy and is just looking for any kind of reply from surprised companies too dumb to realise its fake. Bad news.
Another fake invoice arrives at the radio station. This one makes no attempt to say what the invoice is for, just that it must be paid immediately to avoid penalties. The bottom of the email claims it is from Sheila Lugg, Finance Officer at MAAT but the senders email address is mail @ nrownifi.com. A standard scammer message that obviously wont be paid.
An email from Shawna Goudie claims to offer zero cost advertising forever free and contains a link to a website which does not exist. This scammer has forgotten to make the fake website before sending out the spam messages. It all sounds ridiculous and is to be avoided.
“Important Notice – Fix Incoming Email Issues” is the title for a phishing email message. It claims that multiple incoming messages are being rejected and we must connect to our email portal to recover the messages and fix the problem. There is a link which looks like it’s the radio station website but of course it isn’t. Just an attempt to get us to use our login and password on their fake screen.
Michael Reed wants me to accept bearer bonds worth £50 million from a client of his who died with no one to claim the money. The email is actually from malexjamass @gmail.com which doesn’t match his name, suggesting it is a scam but we know that already as someone offering a fortune to people they don’t even know the name of, is obviously fake. No thanks.
