Scam Email: Patrick Doe

This came from the same servers I saw on a different scam email I posted Monday, so clearly the same scammer is exploiting the same server to send out their massive mailings. And will likely continue to do so until the owners of those servers realize what is going on and plug the security hole.

Hello, This mail is to make inquiry on the below question. 1- Do you carry overseas? (though i already know of a freight forwarder that will pick my packages from you,since they ship lesser than any other courier and they are so effective in shipping my goods to me here in Giza, Cairo, Egypt is estimated to be Next Day Service and 3-4days) I have used their services in the past and it was splendid. 2- Do you accept credit card for payment(U.S.A Master and Visa card to be precise)? Kindly let me know your comments on these, before i send the items I am interested in purchasing from you.

  2. I just received the same e-mail yesterday. I wish it was for real.
