Crooks Getting Smarter

I logged into an old email account of mine recently. Saw a spam message from a few years ago. The thing was really good. Official looking return address at the top. No grammatical errors. Lots of specific numbers cited. Bitmap signature. Link to an official web site. Damn.

The real question is why are they sending me this spam? Are they trying to get some personal details out of me for a further hustle? Seems like a lot of hard work went into crafting this email. The only things that were sketchy were that the contains were all contained in a jpeg image, and they were telling me I won a lottery that I did not enter.

Crooks are getting better at running their scams. Watch out and warn your peoples.
