Phishing Spam that is Not Fooling Anyone


03/24/2008

We got a few hundred of these last week in our SpamSentinel Quarantine database. They are trying to scare people into clicking a link to download a software program the helps in some vague way. But it really does not work at all. Why? Because the text was written in non-American English, meaning it jumps out at you as a fake. The biggest item is the replacement of the decimal point with a comma, which definitely is uncommon usage in America. SpamSentinel caught all of these, but even if you do not use a spam filter on your Lotus Notes email account, I doubt anyone would click on this particularly bad attempt at Phishing ...

A badly executed Phishing email. These spammers aren't fooling anyone...
