It’s been a while since I posted the last scam mail here. Not that I haven’t received any, it’s more that they seem to come in at such a steady stream that it sometimes seems futile to even think that I can publish them all.
Anyhow, here’s a mail that seems to come from a newcomer in the field of internet scamming. And again, the main giveaway is that the mail has been addressed to an anonymous list instead of directly to me, the alleged beneficiary.
from ATM GRANT AID <firstname.lastname@example.org>
