Here’s a new thing I’ve seen in spam recently:
1. This is the first email I’ve noticed where they CUSTOMIZE the dormant account holder. Normally it is a deceased general or president or something like that, and I’ll get millions of dollars. This time, though, it’s a supposed relative! I’m guessing this is just enough to get the unsuspecting to start the scam process 🙁
2. and 3. Why is someone from an “international bank” using a Yahoo account? It doesn’t match up… red flag.
There are a few other red flags in this email – but I hate listing them all for fear the spammers will only use them to make their messages better.
