Scam Alert : Wedding Photographer needed by “Hamburg”

The usual “Nigerian overpayment” email scam is going around in the wedding space yet again – sigh!!…

This latest version is by someone who’s email address calls them “Hamburg“, ironically using the address (Not so “earnest”, trust me, haha) Here is the copy we received:

Did you available on my wedding day? Date:10/25/2012 Venue:Northern Alberta get back for more detail.

Most of them, probably all of them had the subject “Wedding Photographer needed” and seemed to be targeting Alberta Bridal Guide listings in Northern AB.

Be Careful!
