saya pikir Internet adalah tempat yang menakutkan. Ya, saya. Beberapa hari saya menemukan diri saya ngeri untuk menemukan paling rendah dari bajingan kriminal mencoba untuk mencuri mata pencaharian kami.

Ya, orang-orang, ada penjahat di luar sana dan mereka ingin uang Anda atau mereka ingin menggunakan Anda untuk membuat uang. Apa yang lebih menakutkan adalah sejauh mana mereka bersedia untuk pergi, bahkan mempertaruhkan ANDA. Tidak lulus Go. Tidak mengumpulkan $200.

Saya menerima email yang mengatakan bahwa saya sedang ditawari pekerjaan sebagai “Asisten Daerah” dan, meskipun rincian tidak diberi, email menyarankan bahwa itu adalah kesempatan yang sah. Aku menjawab bertanya tentang di mana mereka akan menerima rincian saya dan juga tentang apa yang akan mereka butuhkan dari saya.

Menjadi skeptis saya, Saya pikir saya bisa melihat scammers mil jauhnya. How fortunate that I can still laugh at the idea.

A few hours later, they replied indicating that I’d soon receive further instructions. They’dprobablybeen referred to me by a friend and they had a pile of referrals and so couldn’t specify which friend had recommended me. I waited patiently and left it to the back of my mind. “They’ve probably found a good candidate already and I’ve lost out”, I thought. “How nice that a friend might refer me. Obviously I’m Awesome.” (and daft :-/)

So later on, I receive my email with myfurther instructions”. This is where I finally realised that I was dealing with scammers:

Hi. We’d like to start a trial task. Our customer will make a bank transfer to you this week. Please go to our site <site omitted> untuk menyerahkan rincian perbankan di mana transfer akan pergi ke. Setelah kami membentuk sejarah transaksi yang baik, Anda akan menerima antara 2-3 transfer per minggu (jumlah sekitar R10 000 masing-masing kecuali sidang transfer pertama).
Konfirmasikan bahwa Anda dapat mulai. Kami tidak mengirim transfer ke rekening Anda sampai kami menerima konfirmasi dari Anda.
Pada hari Senin Anda akan menerima pemberitahuan, informasi rinci dan instruksi mengenai transfer. Terima kasih dan memiliki akhir pekan yang indah.

Katakan apa??? Aku memeriksa situs web yang bersangkutan dan, tanpa keraguan, ini adalah skema pencucian uang yang dilakukan oleh para profesional. Mereka tahu apa yang mereka lakukan dan mereka mungkin mencuci jutaan setiap bulan. Apa lagi adalah bahwa, pasti, mereka akan sekrup Anda atas dan polisi untuk menangkap ANDA. Penjahat ini dapat meninggalkan bukti di belakang melibatkan Anda bahkan jika semua yang Anda lakukan adalah rajin bergerak uang dari satu tempat ke tempat lain… dan terus persentase kecil untuk diri sendiri. 😛

Pencucian uang adalah uang haram mana (dicuri, probably) ditransfer melalui pihak ketiga untuk tampil lebih sah. Anda aksesori untuk kejahatan dan, bahkan lebih buruk, Anda bahkan mungkin menjadi korban dari itu. Mengakui ketika kesempatan terlalu bagus untuk menjadi kenyataan. Aku tertipu untuk sementara waktu. Selanjutnya, mengingat bahwa korban mungkin memberikan banyak informasi pribadi, scammers mungkin mencuri identitas Anda dan mulai untuk melibatkan Anda dalam kegiatan penipuan tanpa Anda pernah telah melakukan hal.

Jika Anda kebetulan telah memberikan rincian seperti di atas di mana mereka ingin rincian perbankan saya, hubungi bank Anda dan menginformasikan mereka tentang situasi. Mereka akan memberi Anda mungkin saran terbaik tentang apa yang harus dilakukan selanjutnya. Jika Anda sudah menanggapi surat namun belum sudah memberi mereka informasi yang mereka inginkan, tidak membalas lebih jauh. Saya juga menyarankan memanggil polisi setempat untuk saran lebih lanjut.

Why is it that we’re so gullible?

I even considered for a whole second that my colleague had cross-checked the following SPAM before posting it on our IRL noticeboard. Please note that the following text originally had really bad-for-your-eyes fonts and colours. 😉

Urgent Warning from
Cell C, Telkomsel & MTN!

[business card of aLegal Representativeof the Special Investigating Unit]

Dear All,
If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person, saying that, he or she is
a company engineer, or saying that they’re checking your mobile line, and you have
to press # 90 atau #09 or any other number.
End this call immediately without pressing any numbers.
There is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 atau #09 they can
access your ‘SIMcard and make calls at your expense.
Forward this message to as many friends as you can, to stop it.
All mobile users pay attention if you receive a phone call and your mobile phone
displays (XALAN) on the screen don’t answer the call, END THE CALL IMMEDIATELY,
if you answer the call, your phone will be infected by a virus..
This virus will erase all IMEI and IMSI information from both your phone and your SIM
card, which will make your phone unable to connect with the telephone network. You
will have to buy a new phone. This information has been confirmed by both Motorola
and Nokia.

The first things that got me thinking was the text denoting authority at the top of the page. Sekarang, bear in mind this is on a noticeboardnot my inbox where my anti-spam senses are at their peak.

Who could possibly have the authority to say they’re sending out a notification on behalf of each of South Africa’s tri-opoly of GSM providers? Okay, so its someSpecialLegal team that sounds government-type. They’re legitit turns outbut they probably don’t have enough time to take my call asking if this is all true. Absolutely everything on the Internet must be true, especially anything I say. 😛

So anyway, now that we’re over the silliness, let’s break this hoax down:

Official Documentation

Bar a business card, which is hardly standard in any industry, there is no official contact information. I’d expect at least a letterhead or a misguided trailing disclaimer.

Presentation and Language

There are actually 2 notices here regarding separate threats however it isn’t obvious without reading the text in full. This is because the paragraphing and grammar are very poor. Government institutions don’t normally issue poorly-worded or paragraphed documentation. Juga, why not issue a separate notification regarding each threat separately?

Dan Lime Green??? bleh

There are no links to further resources

Any warning of this sort would undoubtedly offer further information or advertise the online presence of the institution. Juga, perhaps they’d like for you to give feedback on the situation or maybe they’d like us to report on further suspicious activity. But no. Nothing. Just a specific representative’s business card. What if the guy dies, finds a better job, atau leaves the country?

There is a fraud company … “

This means that they haven’t any clue who it is. This is a broad and passive statement. Question whenever someone saysthey” atau “people who”. Who is thisfraud company”? Where isthere”? And why doesn’t this crack government legal team (who have to use chain mail to spread warnings) let us know through their uber-powerful chain mail network?

Forward this message to as many friends as you can

Saya, oh my. This line has probably been in every chain letter / social engineering virus (my special definition) since sliced bread.

This information has been confirmed by both Motorola and Nokia.

They’re trying to prevent you from thinking for yourself and try to verify their claims independently. They’re sayingYou’re stupid to check. We already checked for you. :-D”. Tentu saja, in reality, they’re just trying to take advantage of our gullible nature.

“#90 or #09” dan “XALAN

There isn’t any way for you to verify this. Again, question everything. Google’s first page of results is riddled with the wordsCell phone warning hoax”. duh.

If you get a message like the above from your friends, reply and tell them to stop sending spamand maybe give them a link to this page so they know why. 🙂
