Busy little scammers

      No Comments on Busy little scammers

I posted a fraudulent email to Seen My Way that I had gotten in my inbox. It was one of those that was supposed to be unique to me (personally), sent because an electronic transfer had been cancelled. The claim was that is was from a bank, and it came complete with a reference number.

In less than 24 hours, I have had 616 hits on that email. That means 616 people found my site by searching for that email.

If 616 people were cautious enough to do searches to make sure it was legitimate and so found my site, just exactly how many of those duplicate emails did the busy little scammers send out?

Even more important, how many people simply trusted the email?

P.S. I took my dog for a walk and by the time I got back the hits on that email had jumped to 651. Like I said, busy little scammers!

What do you think?
