Hi everyone

Finally back to the fun of baiting after about a year dealing with stupid real life stuff - hate it when that happens!

Have a very new AFF bait going - the usual "box of money" one. The name of the 'security company' to be used is legitimate, although they are obviously not involved in this line of business. I can even find their office on Google Earth. The phone numbers and email addresses given by my new best friend with a terminal illness are as dodgy as hell though.

What's the normal 419 procedure when a legit business name is used? Do we contact the business and let them know? Not going to do anything at this stage, just curious.

We [normally] never do anything [reg. legit business name used] , unless if a website is given. There is no point to it [as they can do virtually nothing] , and it probably will end up with the email address being shut down, which is bad for several reasons.

When in doubt, pm a moderator to ask.

I remember a bait to be found in the Publiish Your Work Here section, called Musa loves crocodiles, in which the scammer was claiming to be a real charity, and then when it was money transfer time, the baiter conveniently lost the information given by the scammer and claimed to have sent the money with the details on the real (legitimate) website and even to have received confirmation that it was received.
The poor chopped scammer then had to claim "do not use the details on our website, our website was hacked!"

Thanks.

Just put the original email header through iptracker and it shows as Great Britain although she claims to be in Norfolk Island, of all places. My character might have to stop over there some time very soon.

If the company has a website, check it to see if they know their name is being used by scammers, if they don't mention it, it can be nice to warn them so they can put a warning on their webpage, as single simple email will do

Legitimate business names are frequently used by check/credit card scammers when soliciting "representatives". They'll even hijack the name of the real CEO.

I've never heard of this happening with a real security company though.
