Resolved Dr. Mike Johnson — Another e-mail Scammer
I had been looking into online jobs and this scammer got ahold of my e-mail address, who claimed to be from the UK and wanted to offer me online work, but had the following e-mail address: [protected]@yahoo.com.hk, which is a Hong Kong domain e-mail. Further, "Dr. Johnson" had sent the e-mail from: [protected]@optusnet.com.au. Hmmm...sent from Australia...respond to Hong Kong...says he's in the UK. Interesting, right?
The text of the e-mail was fairly official sounding and really the only way you could tell it was a scam was the different e-mail addresses. I just wanted to send out a warning - always look for details like these when you receive "too good to be true" types of offers. Usually they are too good to be true, and these are the the more subtle signs of a hoax.
