New EMail Scam : [greschustefan] aka “Michael”

Happy 2015!

January 15th and the the first instance of the classic (and oh-so-tired and predictable) “Nigerian” scam (you know, oops! my silly assistant overpaid you with my fake cheque, can you pay the travel agent on my behalf) is here.

Only this time is sounds more like a Scandinavian prince :-)
The name is “Michael“, but the email is  greschustefan@hotmail.

(*) UPDATE: as of Friday, the 16th of January, a few of “Michael”‘s emails are now addressed as katherine [] instead.

Here it is:

Email Scam to Bridal Businesses in Canada

Michael's "inquiry"..


Just don’t even bother. You can report it to the police, but they can’t waste their time on stuff like this. You can have fun with this person and collect another fake cheque for your collection of fake cheque, sure, why not?

But under no circumstances should you actually pay this person or any of their associates any money!
