You have to admit that some phishing and borderline fraudulent e-mails are entertaining. Gmail does a pretty good job of shuffling them off to my spam box, though.
I cam across one today, though, that has made my hackles rise up in shame – the prices offered are in the ‘too good to be true’ bracket and the mail smacks of dealings that one has with shady dreadlocked characters in the parking lots of the various shopping malls – those goods that you are buying are not stolen, as the dreadlocked fellow would have you believe, but counterfeit and guaranteed to break in a weeks time.
On to today’s latest farudulent e-mail offering which is titled: BUY FOR LESS, 30% SALES ON DIGITAL CAMERA AND LESES (Click to see the entire offering from “James”)
Worse than the atrocious spelling and shouting in the title is the fact that the sender of the mail, “James”, gives his address as: PERFECT TOUCH, Newton Park, 250 Cape Road, Port Elizabeth, 6045, South Africa.
My question to you:
Is there such a business at 250 Cape Road? (At the intersection of Greenacres, MacDonalds, Cell C, near the Greenacres Hospital)
