Clever Scammer Alert!!!

Post by wb2imh » Thu May 07, 2020 6:38 pm

I just received a phishing e-mail from someone who attached a message to a valid e-mail that I had correspondence with a few days ago. The message read "I have important information for you. Please see attached document". The sender line read "no sender", the topic line had the item I was selling (which has been sold), and the body of the e-mail had all the correspondence that I had with the person who responded to my ad (he is a legitimate ham). Be aware that you must delete this e-mail immediately and by no means open the document. Just a heads up for everyone out there.
