rconner Posted March 18, 2007 Share Posted March 18, 2007 Most of the 419 scams I get are decidedly low-rent, probably originating from Nigerian internet cafes. Here's one, however, where the perp seems to have gone an extra mile or two (tracking ID link). Typical 419 otherwise, but the gimmick is that he asks for reply to an e-mail address at the goldencitybank.com domain. I found that the domain was registered at Melbourne IT just a few days ago, and that there's even a website and no fewer than 8 MX hosts serving the domain, all at Lycos addresses. I larted this to Lycos and Melbourne IT, and will be bookmarking this domain to see what happens. Seems like an unusual degree of diligence and technical know-how for a 419 scammer. -- rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
