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

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"
