Received this email this morning

Hello,


 

   I have just bought a new flat in London - Canada Water (SE16 7DE) and need to totally refurbish it internally. This includes bathroom installation, flooring and  internal painting.MOST THE ELECTRICAL both the kictchen and back store WITH THE UNDERGROUND CABLE ARE BAD

Please i will send you the Engineer Design save in a Drop Box  for you to give me total quotation. My budget is approx. 45,000 pounds


 

Would you be available? I would like to start as soon as possible...


 

Many thanks

Regards

Lewis"


 

 

Bearing in mind I am in the Highlands he can't possibly think I would want to do a job in London?

 

My guess is that if you respond the file he would put in a drop box for you would be something very dodgy indeed.

I've already quoted it, gonna make me some monies!

 

But seriously, yes it is a scam of some sort. Chances are the link he sends you will be to some malware, either the link will be fake or the file you download will have something in it.

 

I've just looked in the junk/spam folder and this is in there so that's doing its job, as expected. The score is pretty low though, probably because it is specialised so it's not just sent to everyone on the planet and also there is no link in it, that will come later. It's a clever piece of social engineering.

That's a pity. I was looking forward to earning £45K on one job and bringing my retirement forward..........

A Nigerian fella wants to split a million with me. Apparently some millionaire died in a plane crash and left all the money to us.
