    Post: Phishing Email w Sharon Pauluk's email address.

    Posted by Sharon Kramer on 1/14/11

    Okay, I may be "Simple Sharon", but I am pretty sure Sharon
    Pauluk aka "Simply Sharon, Mold", did not send me this
    email asking that I send money to the UK so she can catch a
    flight. These guys are getting sooooo creative with their
    phishing and malware..and their Englis is getting better,
    too! I want to make sure no one thinks I sent this email
    to anyone.

    Apologies for having to reach out to you like this, but I
    made a quick trip to London,United Kingdom and had my bag
    stolen from me with my passport and credit cards in it. The
    embassy is willing to help by authorizing me to fly without
    my passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle
    Hotel bills. Unfortunately, I can't have access to funds
    without my credit card, I've made contact with my bank but
    they need more time to come up with a new one. I was
    thinking of asking you to lend me some quick funds that I
    can give back as soon as I get in. I really need to be on
    the next available flight.

    I can forward you details on how you can get money to me.
    You can reach me via email or the hotel's help desk,
    +447045749898. I hope to hear from you soon.


    Wonder if people actually fall for this stuff and don't
    check things out before they send money?

    Simple Sharon NOT "Simply Sharon"
