It is a typical phishing email. We really don't play with that sort of thing here.

There is a ton of good information contained in a persons email account. Very useful for ID theft.

Post up the headers. I think it's a scammer trying to get someone's email box. They'll take it over and then email all the contacts stating that they were lost in another country and need money sent by Western Union.

Fill it out with some details and put the word 'secret' in password field. You can go back and forth with this lad for at least 2 weeks of amusement. Very Happy

It is alot of fun and you'll tie up his time which could be spent on real victims. Please post up his email address and the headers so if anyone Googles the address, it'll be found. I'd also like to play with this moron.

^^^Love the avi NN. Wanna see a trick?

Edit: I disagree somewhat, playing with phishing scams seems like a waste of time to me. They are sent out by the bucket, and there is software available to check and see if responses are valid. A successful phisher will not waste too much time with a back and forth game. I would rather focus my attention on a more typical 419 scam. But your millage may vary.

On the other hand, what the hell, give it a try, it don't cost nothing.


Edit: To add content, and to fix stupid a silly spelling error.

Make sure you bait him from an email address that can't be traced to your real information.

I think some people have also opened up a new box, and then loaded it with baiter addy's and given the password to the scammers to see what happens. Can't hurt as long as nothing ties to you in any way.

I wouldn't worry about your IP. Just make sure you don't use a personal email address, just one with fake details.

I remember late last year when someone received a similar phishing email, they sent back their passowrd as secret or ******, the scammer/phisher engaged them for quite a while trying to explain that they shouldn't put ******, but to write it as words, it was pretty funny Very Happy

A little bait-a-phisher from me (I don't have a Hotmail address)

Quote:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for your recent mail,

You will have noticed that you have sent this to my Yahoo e-mail account.

I need to know if your request applies to me. The reason I ask is that I have read that Hotmail and Yahoo might merge services in the near future to become Hot-hoo ! and this might be the start of some computer housekeeping before you get together.

Please advise


Tracey xxxxxxx

Laughing Yeah, this is not your normal phishing that directs you to a fake site to give up your bank info. This is an attempt to get hold of your email address and then trick your contacts into sending you money. I think it actually happened to another baiter's friend just last week.

A few of us bait people sent a lad a baiter loaded gmail account a couple of months back. The lad was extremely lazy after a ton of work by the bait community and not much happened.

It was more fun sending him the info as follows:

example: [email protected]
password: ********

The lad went a bit crazy trying to explain that we had to TYPE the actual password rather than copying what was showing in the password box... Laughing
