Scam Email: Naomie Fashions Store

Okay, the first flag on this scam email was just annoying, and totally lazy of the scammer - the TO field was just to a list of undisclosed recipients (which probably means millions of emails). The second flag? Notice how the FROM email doesn't seem to match the name and more importantly - how the FROM and Return email do NOT at all match the REPLY-TO email (which is where all your reply emails will actually go - this is the disposable email account the spammer is using, I bet a complaint to AOL would actually get that account shit down). The content of the email is the same-ole, same-ole stuff we see time and time again in these scams.

Here's a funny addition. I googled Naomie Fashion Store and while there is a Naomi Fashions, there is none with Naomie. Then I decided to google the email address: and came up with the most odd posting from that email address. Obviously, the scammer is engaged in all kinds of unseemly activities online:

magret, F, 1987, Cote D'Ivoire
Writing language: English, French, Italian
Correspondence: e-mail
Am magret odinba am girl sexy and lovely lady and i will like to meet you and share something very imporatnt to me with you and i want to know you better so that will can share something benefit for you and me together which i know that you most be a good and honest person and i believe that you will not betray me after, i need you please contact my private email so that i will be able to send my photos to you email at- ,
Ugh, so slimey, I need to go take a shower. I googled, for grins, but there were no results for that, as I suspected.

So our little slimey scammer is making use of someone else's email account, but picked a super slimey one, hoping his intended victims would just hit reply to write back to him (I know, he's pretending to be a woman) and not notice that now the replies are going to a different AOL account. I'll go submit the complaint to AOL now...


  1. thank you for posting this, this person contacted us & wanted to order our product which was over 11,000$.
    Of course after reading this we did not ship to this person.

  2. VERY helpful, thank you. I just received this scam email at my business and luckily researched it first. I appreciate the information!!

  3. same here almost got scammed for 7k from this scammer

  4. We got an email from AKFB boutique with the same address and they asked for a big order. Was also an scam so if you get somebody named Mrs Ajoua Kakro is an scam.

  5. I had exactly the same thing happen to me. I also work in the fashion industry. Got an e-mail from Andrea Smith, ABIDJAN.

    I knew it's a scam, but looks like there are victims.
