I just got this email, telling me that Shoeboxed just finished processing my documents. I used to work with them in the past, but I didn’t remember sending any docs lately and was intrigued.
So I went ahead to see what’s going on and this is what I saw:
Bastards! It’s a bait, hidden in a legitimate email, designed to bypass spam filters and get the user to read the message. Maliciously brilliant.
So what is it all about? The link is not even clickable (#fail), but because I’m obsessed with these kind of stuff, I went ahead and copied the link letter by letter. It took me to a scammy GET-RICH-FAST landing page, that is serving as an affiliate to a binary option website called “MillionairesBlueprint”.
Nothing too exciting.
And I thought I have seen them all… Can’t wait to see what other maliciously brilliant hacks they’ll come up next!
