Scam Spam

Posted on: October 2, 2009

This made it through my junk mail filter. It’s kinda funny! A £300,000 407? That would be quite some car…

It came from a peugeot.org email address. Spammers are getting better and junk mail filters aren’t enough. We need to be vigilant and learn the patterns that spammers use – the information request at the bottom is typical, for example. Also, anything that asks you to reply to different addresses, especially Hotmail and Yahoo is probably a scam.
