Guys, I've had an email from a supposed finance company offering loans, I could see straight away that it was a scam but a company of the same name actually exists, the scammer has used the correct address but an odd phone number which has already been used in another scam. I've done a whois on the real companies domain name and it all seems to check out right back to the web designers and everything. Should I report this scam to the company so that they can shut it down?
Thanks

Good find, you paid attention. Thumbs up
If.. then use a fake addy and sent them a copy of that email complete with headers, that should do the trick. Where did the scammer send his email from? Yahoo or a special domain that looks like the company? Or why not show the whole email here and I'll help you to get everything out of there what we can.

^^ What he said. Wink

Also, if the sender's address corresponds with that company's domain-name check if there is a Reply-To-header in the mail, or if the lad simply tells you "Reply to me at ...@...".

Mail-headers, as you surely know, can easily be spoofed, which of course includes the sender's address.

As bill suggested I'd think it would be useful to see post the headers here, or even the whole mail.
But I think removing the reference to the abused company may be okay in order for them not to show up here when being googled, may not be that good for the image, even if it clearly states here that they are legit.

Since you are using GMail you can easily get the full mail, including the headers, by clicking the arrow to the right of the reply-button. There you will find "Show Original", which does the trick.

Anyway, so the only real thing the lad used was the address and the name, right?
Well, it's unlikely that an interested person would be reply by snail-mail, but a lot more likely that he'll give a call or simply reply to the mail.

Having a real company name of the business gives the lad credibility as people can check that this company exists. Many people fail to notice that most companies don't rely on Yahoo/MSN/GMail for their mail-exchange...

About forwarding the mail to the company: I'd vote yes, as then at least they know that their name is being abused in scam-mails. And maybe they can post something about it on their website.

Now what to do with that header, eh
Try this open a window http://headertool.apelord.com/headers and copy-paste the whole header in there click check header and see what it does for you Wink Book mark that one, you will need it again.

So you have now 82.205.243.5 Nigeria (Awka) that's interesting, you never new they had an office there too Laughing

Just find their email addy and mail them the whole letter + header (with your other email removed) from a SAFE addy and you did what you could to warn them.
Now you can decide if you want to bait this sucker? Wink

Oh I think I'll go for a bit of baiting, perhaps as an old man desperate for some extra money. See how quickly he bites.

try baiting with three characters, one today, two tomorrow and three the day after that. As one is first in line he got the lads questions so two and three can come up with problems before he can ask the questions Wink
Now if it gets boring two can meet one and tell the lad about it Twisted Evil

It's so quick and easy to get a loan off these people. Amzingly as soon as you get the agreement through tehy tell you that the company has move to Nigeria. Still, good iterest rates, not sure how an 82 year old man is going to pay off $98,000 though, at least not over 12 years. I hope their securities good though because I would hate for Mr G0m3r to be getting in on the act.
