I just got this email:
As you can see the domain they are using is qooqle.com.
Damn thats a good one. So subtle it'd be easy to miss that.
Just another example as to why it's best not to follow links in unexpected emails. Even if you think it might really be legit and you want to go check your account, type in the url or use your bookmarks to get to your account.
they do the same thing with paypal, craigslist, and several banks
I never click anything from emails.
you can always tell scams, because the scammers are illiterate 100% of the time
Yes, you are absolutely right. There are a few mistakes in this qooqle email. However, I bet there are still a good number of people that still fall for it.
thats very true. Especially old people who dont know any better
It looks like some foreign dude wrote it up lol. And really, its not that hard to mass send spoofed emails, saying Google.com not qooqle.com, lol. This kid is just an amateur.
So true. Makes you think why is it still possible today that stupid persons are allowed to make more money from educated people by simply taking advantage of the trust some societies have come to use as something to be expected from everyone.
A scammer accused me of being unethical yesterday because I sent him a fake money transfer number, saying I was wasting his time tssss.
What the OP can do is spin up his proxies and enter different fake login info like a billion times on the scam website and let the poor dude spend ages trying to figure out where the hell are the ones that are going to make him 'rich'.
lol @ qooqle.com
Lol whenever i get the craigslist scam emails, I always go to the site and put in something stupid like
Its funny because half the time i will hide my email in postings and put another email address for contact that doesnt even have a cl account, and they will try to get me on that email.
Then theres the ones that are tryin to scam with the fake cashier checks, this one is always funny because i will post a service like fixing computers, and they will reply saying "is the posted advert or item still available, lol. for 1 im not selling anything, and number 2 who really says advert? lmao and for the ones who say item instead of advert, thats still stupid, because if i reply to a tv for sell ad, i say " is your sony 52" tv still available" if they say item, its obviously spam.
What it all comes down to is you can tell a scam if you watch for key words and literacy.
Got this a few weeks back. The spammer used something like "email@example.com" - luckily I realized that google never uses ...@gmail.com
Its really obvoius if it says "Dear User", come on....
We get tons of Nigerian scams at our workplace.
Personally, I also get some phishing emails some time. Some of them are very convincing and professional.
lol, or the all too famous dear sir/madam
yea...I love those ones..and then they ask me to send them a payment of $5,000.00 so the can invest my money and make me a whopping 100k I always tell them I sent the money WU
Here's the MTCN: SUCKTHEFARTOUTMYAZZ
I also like the ones when their husband who just happens to be the king or president of some town just died and they are going to deposit some odd million dollars in your account even though they have never met you until that email. lol
Lol heres the funniest one ive seen yet, i just got this in my email.
Your posting has been flagged for removal.
Approximately 97% of postings removed are in violation of craigslist posting guidelines.
Sorry for the hassle, and thanks for your understanding.
Lol I didnt find anything illiterate about this one at all, he wouldve got me good if it wasnt for one minor problem. heres the email address it came from firstname.lastname@example.org
Lol, he lost that one before he even did the work to create the template lmao
