Today I received a request from a Polish woman that I know.
She wanted my advice about an email that she had received from some guy she didn’t know. I have written about these scams in the past (Phishing with Naked Women and Romantic Lures), and have categorized them as something I call salmon phishing.
The male victims, who think they're talking to a real beauty, may in fact be talking to a male as young as 13 years old.
The pictures are stolen from various sites and previous victims. Recently scammers have been using previous victims' photos from dating and social networking sites. All services, all hotel rooms, and all hospital services must be paid for in advance.
You should know, I am the only daughter of my momy Who cares much about my personal life, Whom Had always wished to see me getting married to a desirable man of my choice(who knows if it you).
Almost everyone knows the emails are scams, but they can’t seem to stop the hope that they are not. You will probably see through it right away as I did, but that’s easy for us to say. I’m am serious with what ever i do and i don’t play games..
A properly designed letter could compromise a company in the same way any other phishing scam could. Take care and i will be waiting for your response First of all, if anyone happens to know this poor guy, will you please tell him his pictures are being used by a number of these scammers?
As such, they manage to bypass the logic filter, just as a salmon won’t listen to logic when he is about to head upriver to spawn and die.
That’s what makes these email scams so powerful and, potentially, dangerous to companies and organizations. Thanks for your quick response, I’m Derrick James Hayes,a USA Army Officer am a faithful person have one son called Mike i lost my parents at the age of 12 in a plane i don’t have any family expect my son am the Warrant Offices in the army .i have been in the army for the past 27 years and will be coming home by the end of next month as am ready to retired when i come home, At the moment i don’t have any plans for the future yet when i retire but looking forward to have a woman with a caring heart to spend the rest of my life together with.
