These guys should be tied to chairs and made to read the 'How to post in proper English' thread before anything else.

I also got a mail through LinkedIn from some "Kasyapa Muralidhar" [claiming to be some HR in Google People Operations], regarding openings in Google, Hyderabad. But something feels just wrong since he has zero connections in linkedIn. Thought I should point that out too.

Default Scam/SPAM mail in the name of Hyundai India

Friends,

Today I received a scam mail (with MS Word Doc attachment, I've attached it below), stating that I was selected to join them as s Senior Engineer.

To do to, I need to pay them by DD for Rs.15,800 only. ;-)

I just wanted to forward this Email to their HR officials, but I couldn't find their id anywhere at their site.

The ID used was hyundaimotors1@live.com

PS: I know this thread is off-topic, so I posted it here I am not sure if this is the right place.

But I assume someone from Hyundai would be informed via this thread, and also this could be an alert to many.

IMO, just delete it. There are 100's of mails like this. Its not worth informing the officials. A next one will pop in within days.

The sad part is that, some dire individuals, still fall for them. Even my sister once sent her personal details to claim her so mentioned $50,000 winnings through email.

Now-a-days these spammers started writing more like Genuine mails. Its sad that many are still unable to identify the differences.

I have received countless e-mails and sms informing me that I have won/they will send me xxx amount of euro/dollars. I just delete those.

Going by those sms/e-mails, I should be able to buy off some small country like Bhutan or the like. HaHa..

Default Beware - New way of minting money

I got mail from a friend

Quote:
This happened in Mumbai.. An incident narrated by one of the Chartered Accountants...

Dear All,

This happened in Mumbai.......

I cannot stop myself from sharing this with all of you. It all started when I received a call from someone claiming that he was from my mobile service provider and he asked me to shutdown my phone for 2 hours for 3G update to take place. As I was rushing for a meeting, I did not question and shutdown my cell phone.

After 45 minutes I felt very suspicious since the caller did not even
introduce his name. I quickly turned on my cell phone and I saw several missed calls from my family members and the others were from the number that had called me earlier - 3954380.

I called my parents and I was shocked that they sounded very worried asking me whether I am safe. My parents told me that they had received a call from someone claiming that they had me with them and asking for money to let me free. The call was so real and my parents even heard 'my voice' crying out loud asking for help. My parent was at the bank waiting for next call to proceed for money transfer. I told my parents that I am safe and asked them
to lodge a police report.

Right after that I received another call from the guy asking me to shutdown my cell phone for another 1 hour which I refused to do and hung up. They keep calling my cell phone until the battery had run down. I myself lodged a police report and I was informed by the officer that there were many such scams reported. MOST of the cases reported that the victim had already transferred the money! And it is impossible to get back the money. Be careful as this kind of scam might happen to any of us!!! Those guys are so professional and very convincing during calls. If you are asked to shut down
your cell phone for updates by the service provider, ASK AROUND!
Your family or friends might receive the same call.
Be Safe and Stay Alert!

Thanks for sharing but I think alarm bells should go off as soon as they refer to service provider updates. In 10 years of owning a cellphone there has not been 1 instance that service provider wants you to shutdown the phone for some updates. All updates are done at their server end during which time one might face networking connectivity issues.

Default Re: Beware - New way of minting money

This is quite an old scam forward - I remember receiving it a year back! Not really sure if I have even got a single actual name or police report citing the truth of the matter.

@brraj - does your friend have the details of the involved "Chartered Accountants"? I highly doubt if he does. Pretty much it's just one of many forwards, being sent to you.

Sorry for being sceptical, but one must be really a doofus to fall for such a trick. Seen several of such "scam" mails floating around for ages. Not necessary to raise the alarm bells or open a new SCAM thread for every such forward.

P.s Googled it - found a 2009 thread on the first search result!
Ok people, get back to work. No scam, just a forward

The key here is the caller does not use your phone number to make the call - it's some other number. As long as its not your existing number that is used, you're good.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if people fell for this as we've all seen several Nigerian lottery winners.

@brraj,
Thanks for Sharing!! AFAIK, no Service provider will ask us to switch off the Mobile phone for 2 Hours. But eventually, Someone will fall prey for this who may not be in a situation to think rationally at that point of Time just like the victim described in the mail.
This surely is a worthy piece of information. I'll share this info to my friends.

Coincidentally, I received a mail as stated below while reading this thread. Without opening the attachment I just Shift+Deleted it.
