2009-07-03 Nice sample in the spam of what is in Du ...
Nice sample in the spam of what is in Dutch called acquisitiefraude (aquisition fraud?). Trying to make companies pay for being in some 'register' where nobody looks. From the spam e-mail:
In order to have your company inserted into the registry of World Company Directory for 2009/2010, please print, complete and return the enclosed form (PDF file) to the following address:
With the detail:
Updating is free of charge!
Well, updating may be free, insertion isn't when reading the small print in the PDF:
I HEREBY ORDER A SUBSCRIPTION WITH SERVICE PROVIDER WORLD BUSINESS DIRECTORY LTD. I WILL HAVE AN ENTRY INTO ITS DATABASE FOR THREE YEARS. THE PRICE PER YEAR IS EUR 980.
Spammers and frauds nicely working together, not a surprise.
