The Spam Report: Day #12: “Waiting for your response”
Let them wait
MY DESK: MADISON — So, I like people who are polite. It’s something I’ve tried to teach my children as well. It’s amazing how much nicer the world is when you say, “Please” and “Thank You.”
That said, when it comes to someone I’ve never met trying to get something from me, politeness only goes so far. As quaint as the idea of a European barrister trying to do business with me might be, the lack of personalization, the email address that sent the note is different from the one they’re requesting I respond to, it just doesn’t smell right.
I have no idea what the end game is of this email, meaning I don’t know if they want person information they can sell or if they’re literally trying to get me to give them money, I don’t really care.
Further, the gentleman sending me this note has three last names (Martinez Santiago Fernandez) for a first, middle and last name. That jumped out at me and I don’t know why.
With those caveats, please don’t fall for this.
