Scam Email: Jason Max

Just got to love these scams coming in on our turkey day. Given, it is not a holiday in anyone's country but the U.S., but it just goes to show how many of these emails originate from outside the U.S.

This comes out of Australia and I didn't even engage him, so he hasn't gotten to the "meat" of his scam yet. But it has enough the tell-tale signs. I'm posting the full headers so you can see the difference between his "From" and "Reply-to" email address and the actual "Return-path" (shown when you view full headers).

I think they are getting hip to us asking them to come up with specifics and now they are asking what our website is when replying, to make sure they are contacting the right *victim*... I mean store... Very funny of them to do this.

Return-path: []
Received: from (HELO ([])
          by with ESMTP;
Received: from crothing by with local (Exim 4.69)    (envelope-from [])
    id 1PLiZh-0008Tw-E1
From: Jason Max []
Message-Id: []
 How are you doing, i will like to order some of your products, i will be  making payment via my credit card,i will have a shipping agency pick up my  order from you as soon as payment is cleared, i will like you to include  your web page while replying back to confirm i contacted the right store,i  will like you to treat this mail with good concern and reply earnestly so we  may proceed,
 Thank you
