From various “Managers” including “Manager Thomas Olson” and “Ethan Richard” and Subject Line “Shipping Service,” this FedEx email scam is yet another laugh. As usual, grammatical errors give away poor development, but since most Americans can’t read well, they’d likely miss these points. Remember to mouseOver the links and inspect the target URLs.

Hmmm, you have to wonder if the name they used has some meaning? Yet another LinkedIn email scam that targets a server that is probably hijacked. Like usual, the mouseOvers reveal the target URL that is not LinkedIn.
Another humorous scam email with a poorly devised government subpoena scare tactic. Aside the poor grammar, it’s a poorly crafted scam. Note the mouseOver to an unrelated target URL as usual.
This subpoena is meant to inform of file # 83871-79 which is opened and under investigation with FFIEC following a accusation of your Financial Institution regarding suspect financial activity on your account.
Another humorous email scam that tricks you into thinking FedEx delivered a package to the “post office” for you to pickup. Note the mouseOver reveals the target URL, which is obviously not a reputable carrier!
The Russians are still at it? You have to give them credit for persistence, but a low score for efficiency. Today was a LinkedIn email scam letter. Note the link is a Russian website when you mouseOver a link. The caveat here is to never click a link in an email until you have checked the source and the destination. Don’t trust your eyes, as the layouts are easy to reproduce.
You have to laugh when these come through, especially that they were crafted by illiterate scammers. Note the first line stating, “You done a payment of…” instead of “You have made a payment of” that stands out. That’s one expensive movie! No address on the recipient. the Resolution Center link is nice and large for the people who don’t cotton-on to the scam. Remember, just mouseOver the links and identify the URL. This one goes to a Russian website, but Google has sanctioned them already, yet they still send this email. Goes to show they aren’t organized, or have too many scams on their plate.
More spam emails in the form of Better Business Bureau BBB emails stating that a response is required for a business grievance from someone such as a client. This one originated in Armenia, and there are other countries sending them. SImply mouse-over the links and view the targets they point to, and you will see the targets are not Better Business Bureau addresses. As well, note that the illiterate developer revealed poor use of the English language, but don’t use that as an indicator of spam, because companies like the Better Business Bureau use illiterate people to write their documents much like many other supposedly professional organizations. Typos are one thing, but sentenaces like the following really make me laugh…
If you have this error when you try to compile something in the Command Line Interface on a Mac, there’s a super simple solution. It requires installaing XCode from Apple for free, then installing the Command Line Tools for free from within XCode. There is some download time involved, but how can you complain when it’s free!?
