Scam Alert
« on: August 21, 2018, 03:09:28 pm »

Recently I received two email scams that I'd like to share. Keep it on your radar.

1. Email offering purchase of limited edition prints.
Catch: they would pay, but ask to pay from that amount to their shippers, movers in this case.

2. Email offering work with a couple of models for online blog publication, reasonable pay.
Catch: they would pay, but ask to pay models and agencies from the deposit amount.
Odd thing detected - reply-to email goes to gmail account while from email is from the domain they say they are related to.

In both cases, they cancel their check and keep your payment.
Luckily, my radar worked.

Money doesn't grow on trees.

Anyone who thinks it does deserves to be parted from his.
