RE: [Chrysler300] Lazenby post





There appear to be interesting and subtle differences between the messages.

 

Mine had a subject line of “Favor” and said:

 

Hello!

 

How are you doing today?

 

Can you do me a favor please

 

 

Thanks

John

 

There was no link, my first name did not appear and JL’s name and address on the “From” line were his standard issue.  Maybe special treatment for men named John? 

 

I did open the email but nothing happened.  Perhaps my virus filters stripped something out or John’s list went to different hackers with differing MO’s.

 

Thanks for sharing.  I needed to raise my paranoia level.

 

On reflection, it is nice to drive a nice old lettercar that requires me to have at least one hand on the wheel, contains no nanny or black box, does not have a “Check Engine light” and is not subject to hacking or tracking.  It’s computers are pretty much analog-TorqueFlite, distributor, alternator regulator, carbs, relays, switches, circuit breakers, remote-boosted power brakes, shocks & etc.

We need to french fry whoever did this stuff..

The text seemed aborted on repetition/ forwarding - that worries me. As if
it was somehow preventing exposing the words used.

What it said was ; "John, can you do me a favor?,

John L "

So customized, brief, not a generic plea. Most of us would open that?

Then , upon opening, it went to the scam about sick relatives in foreign
countries.

I am well aware of this kind of thing, not stupid, but the first email was
,to me very sophisticated?? played on someone who in fact respects John a
lot,---I paused briefly-- and then thought "he needs something about 300's"
.

What a slime ball. French fry till a toasty critter.

As I understand it, a hacker steals an e-mail list, then sends the same
message to all on the stolen list to confirm the address is still in service
and of some value to someone somewhere. Then the hacker puts a million
addresses or so on storage media and peddles them around the world. The
first victim will never know their list was stolen until someone tells them.
Recipients that delete before opening are slightly better off as their
e-mail address won't be on this particular list. In this case there did not
appear to be any pictures or attachments that might have a virus to plant on
the recipient's computer.

Don't blame John or block his pretty cool e-mail address. He has much
knowledge and experience to share.

I'm kinda of a French fry guy myself.
