Learning Jakarta

We have already reviewed couple email offers from so called local businesses and from Nigeria. Below is one more example. This time our "friend" writes from Asia. Here is the message that we got.


Spam email message from Jakarta


First, never click any links provided you by unknown people! In 99.9% there will be a computer virus that will silently install a software so that your computer will be widely opened to the strangers. The results can be very sad - your stolen personal info, SSN, bank accounts, names, addresses, etc. This info can be used to steal your money from your accounts, to open new loans that you will never find until you realize that you need to pay for something that you've never bought, etc. And you will  be unable to prevent that if your personal info is widely spread over the Internet. Sometimes people are very naive and provide their own info for free to whoever wants to get it. There are many TV and Radio programs, Internet web sites, newspapers, magazines, showing and telling how to prevent that, but... People never learn. In this particular case the author of this email message simply wants you to enter your personal info! How simple that is! Will you do that?

Let's skip this incredible salary of 300-500 per month and tons of promises and dig deeper using the trick that we have already described here. Below is what we got from this email message.

We skip all the details and get the IP address this message was sent from. As we have already written before there are many free Internet services to find the sender. Let's use this one and get some info from it. Here we go.

Let's return back to our original message. Here is the link to find the IP address this message came from. The report is relatively long since there are 5 records found for our IP address. Here is the report.



APNIC, Spam Tracing Report


As you can see, all these addresses are located in Indonesia and have nothing to the local business. There are so many questions that we can ask about this business and this particular offer. And the first question could easily be - are they unable to find somebody local to work with? The second question, that we could probably ask, can be - how these people work with "Google, Facebook, Myspace, Amazon, eBay, and Yahoo" living in Indonesia? The most obvious answer is - they never worked with these companies, they are just using their names to trick the people receiving their messages. Usually if the people see the names of the well-known companies they at least don't delete the message right away and read a little more. So these names are used to pay your attention. It's not important what's inside these messages. All that was done just to get your personal info. As a possible way, they can tell you that they sent you a check in a mail, but you didn't receive it. So why don't you provide them your personal info and bank account to make a direct transfer? As a result, you will probably lose everything including your identity. Do you really want that? Absolutely not! These people want to get your personal information using any trick. So don't be widely open and never provide anything whatever they want!

Good luck!
