NEW EMAIL SCAM - BEWARE

4 ELEMENTS TO BE-AWARE OF IN EMAIL FRAUD OR SCAMS - 
   EXAMPLE BELOW

This is one is pretty convincing - Either Way check these elements of the email before you open,  hit reply or print receipt.

1. DO NOT REPLY OR HIT PRINT RECEIPT

1.  SUBJECT LINE = Order shipped 1st RED FLAG
     1st ask yourself if you ordered anything recently? 

2.  SAYS & LOOKS LIKE "FED EX" -  2nd RED FLAG
     EMAIL RETURN ADDRESS IS NOT @ FEDEX so whether it is e-posta, myespostal, or tungsten-wedding-ring, or anything besides FEDEX it's a fraud. 

3. 3rd RED FLAG TRACKING ID: 
    GO TO THE "REAL" FED EX SITE or UPS SITE TO TRACK PACKAGE
    COPY AND/OR TYPE IN THE TRACKING NUMBER GIVEN
    IT WILL COME UP AS NOT FOUND

4. DO NOT OPEN EMAIL DO NOT RESPOND DO NOT HIT PRINT
    Any one of these actions can result in a virus attacking your computer "myepostal" and/or e-posta.us are an encrypted email service - and this one appears to be in the US but could be rerouted. 

The hit print button goes to is alacahan .  org  / ...hp?receipt= 843 230776 9 4 6  and they recently changed another to go to allizeautomobi (which is a real company and another victim of this sceme) ...hp?receipt= 845_353102 4 6 0 extra spaces added for your protection. Just because a site says .org it does not mean it is a non profit and/or safe to use. 

A virus protection program is needed. A reliable free program can be found in Microsoft Security Essentials some services like Comcast offer Norton.  These types of scams can also result in you being told you need to provide an additional fee to get your package - if you provide it you are then exposing your personal information to identity theft and/or once linked to the site a virus sent to your computer. 

Google "FBI status on hackers - FBI status on email fraud for more updates "

Alacahan has an ip of  (95.168.176.37) and appears to be out of Kangal Turkey and or it's face book link as of 1/4/12 shows Alacahan Nahivesit, 58870 Kangal, Sivas, Turkey  no other business appears to be linked to it; alacahan is the name of a place in Turkey ( not very creative )

  2. My pleasure, the more people who report these spams and/or scams the more likely the FBI and/or Federal Trade Commission can shut them down.
