Phishing Scam Examples

  1. As we can see in the example below, the scammer uses some incorrect or strange grammar. Generally, people would not say this “is an monthly” in this manner. Most word processing applications and auto-correct would pick this up. Also, the phrase “at the end of month” is missing the definite article ‘the’ before ‘month’.

Hi,

 

This invoice is an monthly invoice so we will expect a payment at the end of month.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!
