Email Scams And Hoaxes Past, Present And Future

The subject of email scams and hoaxes past, present and future comes up in everyday conversations. You hear about them on the radio in the news on television and during some humorous conversations with your friends at work and sometimes around the dinner table at home. Let’s face it we get them almost on a daily basis and they can be very annoying and will eventually clog up your emails inbox if you don’t clear them out on a regular basis.

Some Simple tips to Avoid email Fraud and Scams

Why?

The reason for all of these Email Scams and Hoaxes Past, Present and Future is to steal money from inexperienced and desperate people. Often times seniors get taken by the fraud emails in a time of weakness and confusion. I have read about younger people having their money stolen by the scam because the were unaware of the scam and have never been warned or educated. That is why I am writing this article. I want to help you understand and spot Email Scams and Hoaxes Past, Present and Future.

Identifying Email Scams and Hoaxes Past, Present and Future

I will attempt to show you eight points in a scam email that I received in September 2015. It is a screenshot (picture) off of my computer screen that I annotated and pointed out some of the grammatical and punctuation errors within the email attempting to extract information about the recipient.

Email Scams and Hoaxes Past, Present and Future example

The parcel contains an email address that is the first sign of a fraud.

The email has two different email addresses. One address is the real FEDEX tracking website and the other 4. is a free gmail email address that

3. Mr. Whyte Holmes is the name he is using for his scam so the sucker on the receiving end can send his Identification to in order to receive the Fake money.

FedEX has their own servers thus their own email address for customers to contact them directly NOT through a second party like Mr. Whyte Holmes.

Several areas of this email have sentence punctuation and grammatical errors.

Spelling error.

Spelling error.

Spelling error.

Fedex does not have a security keeping fee.

I am also including a screenshot of the tracking page of the package that contains the big payday for the end recipient. tracking page screenshot from fedex

Warning!!!!

Beware of Emails with links that fake email and URL address’, misspelled words and bad grammatical errors should raise a red flag right away.zredflag

2.Criminal scams usually originate from countries where English is not the first language.

First If you actually send your information to Mr. Whyte Holmes you might not get a reply. Instead, at a later time and date your bank accounts, credit card and identity could have been stolen. So don’t give your name address and personal information to anyone offering a large amount of money.

Secondly You could receive the check go to the bank cash it for the amount specified and then a couple of days later the bank bounces the check for NSF Non-Sufficient funds Then you will be held responsible for the amount and possibly end up in Court on Fraud charges yourself.

FINALLY.

Hopefully, you have been educated on a few of the finer points of avoiding an email scam. Remember to do your research before you delve into any sketchy sounding schemes.
