Hi,
I represent the valid New Zealand based globally distributing company 'LouvreTec New Zealand' (www.louvretec.com) over the past few months it has come to my attention that a group of email scammers has adopted our company name and is using it to create false job offer emails with the intention of ensanring victims into handing over their bank account information.
I've been tracking server IP adresses but they always use hijacked servers. The emails are increasing in number by the week, this is tarnishing our company image and causing irreperable damage to our marketability.

Please Scam Assasins, can you target these criminals? We're a family owned business so you wouldnt be helping line the pockets of corporate hot shots. We're just trying to survive the financial crisis like everyone else, but email sacmming is making things hard for us.

Any thoughts, comments or advice would be much appreciated.

Below is a sample email:

Dear Sir/Ma,

Louvre Tec Products Ltd has grown to become a market leader in the design, manufacture & installation of a range of Aluminum Opening Roofs, Sun Louvres & Shutters. Many of our systems are multi-functional.

Established in 1996, Louvre Tec Products Ltd is a New Zealand owned company and operates from custom built premises on Auckland's North Shore. Louvre Tec Products Ltd is available nationwide and worldwide. Research and Development play a vital role in the Louvre Tec Products Ltd story. All Louvre Tec Products Ltd's products are fully engineered and tested for reliability.

Louvre Tec Products Ltd offers a full sales and installation service and will provide design ideas to complement your project. We need representatives in the United States/UK who will be in charge of all our payments from the United States and United Kingdom clients/customers.

Most of our customers from United States and United Kingdom pay through Bank Wire Transfer and Certified Checks which are not negotiable here in New Zealand. This brings our quest to employee a credible and trustworthy fellow as our representative to handle our payments. This would not affect your present job but serve as another stream of income to your good self. Being our representative and assisting us in processing the payments from our clients shall earn you a weekly salary and commission of about 10% of every payment you assist us with.
Due to the fact that we can not process the US/Uk Bank Transfers here in the New Zealand, we have lost in the past about £85,000 of net income each month because of money transfer delays. Most of our clients/customers who purchase our products need to pay large amount of money through their Bank wire transfer account and this is the reason we also need a representative who has eligible account to receive money for our company.

Your task is to coordinate payments from our customers and help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales.

If you are interested, email us back for more information


Regards,
Louvre Tec Products Ltd
Auckland's North Shore

I believe they actually do fake check scams and that's my current target area. I'll start working on them shortly.

ETA: Did they give a reply-to address? I need that to start some scammer pain.

Hi LouvreTec and welcome to Eater. Sorry you are here because you are being targeted by scammers though.

Can you help us by posting the complete headers of the scam email? It can help us see where they are sending the emails from.


May I ask why you don't post a scam warning on your website? I think that would be very proactive and would let consumers know you are aware of the problem and trying to warn potential victims that click on the link to your website.

Also, if you would take the time to go to our sister site, ScamWarners, and post up your information there, it will help educate and prevent more victims if they are aware of the scam and how your company is not involved in it.

The best thing that can be done to these scammers directly is expose them for others to find out about them, both here and at ScamWarners, and Eater members can bait them. And we are very good at both of these things. Wink

To be honest the thought of posting a website warning never crossed my mind. Shocked

Thanks for the advice, I will try to get an email header from you next time I get a reply. They switch servers so often that I want to make sure that I can get you a valid IP.

How about an email address they ask for you to reply to if you were a potential victim?

My neck of the woods. I just called and spoke to the OP. He is a bit tied up at the moment but I have asked him to send me the full headers and will post them when I get them.

Potential job seekers have been contacting them directly or through their website, asking about the job. He has tried responding to the email but it bounces back.

The english is better than average for lads, but does get a little odd here and there

Just thinking out loud, but if there is no valid reply address then either it is incompetence or deliberate sabotage, unless there is a 3rd option?

I am not sure how the scammers want to be contacted. I have done a search of this scam on the internet and I can't find a 'reply to' address anywhere. It is very odd. Confused

I still think this company could easily place a notice on their website about the scam and thus educate the public, appear pro-active, and not have to deal with the constant hassle of potential job seekers. Seems like a win-win situation. Very Happy

I looked at the header information for the latest scam mail and it only contains the server information for our own mail server. This is probably because the message was forwarded to myself through the sales department from a dealership in Northland, so the original header information appears to be lost.


I asked him to ask the IT guys to take a look, and to get anyone asking about the job to get in touch with me, perhaps we can get the headers that way.

Just a bit of an update from my side, I have received no new scam mail for quite a while. It's gone dry for some reason, but I'm waiting for a fresh lead so I can post the relevant header info.

Our website has carried a new 'EMAIL SCAM WARNING' on the front page since it was suggested, I think this has cancelled most of the new scam attacks before they begin. Since many of the scam emails contain a link to our website, the scam warning seems to be having a good effect.

PS: the latest 'reply to' address for this LAD:

I'm glad to hear it. They're probably still using the scam, but with another companies name and website.
You've got a warning on your website, and Google may have many reports of it being a scam. They've moved onto fresh pastures.

That's a spoofed email. Without the headers, we can't know for sure.

^Is that Addide company a real company or one made up by a lad? Often lads will make up companies and even make fake sites to make them sound more legitimate. But I don't see a website, real or fake.
