Got another "New York Traffic Ticket" in my spambox, and I haven't been in NY in several years. It's not really a ticket, of course, it's just a scammer who wants us to open an attached piece of malware. I've downloaded it to my zip drive before, and have found that it's a trojan. It's this trojan that is supposed to be the "ticket," so that anyone who is unwary might open it. They just say to send the "ticket" with payment to some P.O. Box in "Chatham," but otherwise don't give a city, state, or zip (postal) code below. If you get this piece of spam, do not download anything! This entry is linked here, and is in the lower left hand corner. Here's a good video from a lady who covers this scam and a few others; eleven minutes. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Ah, we have something fresh for a change, or at least this is the first I've personally seen of it. This is an interesting little scam-mail that claims to come from nacha.gov, a domain which does not exist. The actual website is at nacha.org, which really is the Electronic Payment Association. This particular spam does not come from NACHA, however. Linked here is the page that warns about this attached malware that comes in a zip file. Do not ever open these attachments! This is a piece of malware known as "Heur.Dual.Extensions@-1," and it's apparently been around for a couple years. Some of the forums claim it's a false positive when scanned, so we're not sure that anyone knows just what it does as yet. I keep telling myself that I'm going to get an older, offline junk computer to intentionally infect, just to see what stuff does, but it never happens LOL.

My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
