Dear Quint



Just got this message to my wer kennt wen account. Typical Scam. If you get something like this delete it, block and report the sender.

Dear Quint

I am Mr. Alpha Khorombi, a banker by profession. I personally discovered a dormant account with a total sum of $9, 500,000.00 [NINE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS] during the Annual Audit of our Bank belonging to Mr A.Quint. Since the death of our deceased customer, nobody has operated in this account till date. Moreover, this account has NO BENEFICIARY attached to it. Definitely this fund will be confiscated if it remains dormant for some period of time without any claims. In this regard, I earnestly need your full cooperation in transferring this money out of our bank to avoid our bank confiscating this fund.

Most importantly, you will be required to:
(1). Act as the original relative of the deceased person.
(2). Receive the funds into a business/private bank account.
(3). At the completion of this transaction, the sharing method shall be 50% for me while 50% for you.

Respond to me through my private email address for details of this transaction: alphakhorombi@rocketmail.com

Waiting eagerly to hear from you soonest
Mr. Alpha Khorombi

Spam from Thai Company


The Company Perfect Training and Services, http://www.perfecttrainingandservice.com/ is sending unsolicited emails to different email accounts on my company domain. The so called Newsletter is complete in Thai and does not include a Link to be removed from the Mailing List. In addition nobody did apply to this mailing list.


I personally sent a few emails to ask them to remove us, but we still receive this unwanted emails. A research brought following result:

The IP Address of the company website is located in Canada, but the Domain Space Provider is a Thai Company called Dragon High Speed. Their Website is www.dragonhispeed.com and it is existing, but the there used contact email address, info@dragonhispeed.com, is not working. A WHOIS search resulted in an other Contact email, admin@dragonhighspeed.com, but this is also not working.
(There is no spelling mistake in the above email addresses, there are written this way, but both are bouncing back.)

A whois.net search showed details Administrative, Technical and Billing Contact, which is Mr. Jerat Wattanakool, dreamhorror@hotmail.com. This email address was also contacted by me requesting a remove of my Domain from there email lists. The email did not bounce back, but there was no answer.

Facebook declares victory over porn spammers

San Francisco - Facebook has succeeded in blocking a spam attack that had filled users' pages with millions of pornographic and violent images, the company said Wednesday.

The world’s largest social networking platform said it had identified those responsible for launching the attack and would take legal steps against them.
The announcement came a day after the site had fallen victim to one of the worst hacks in its history, with the obnoxious images spreading by masquerading as new Facebook feeds that downloaded poisoned files that were passed on to the victims’ friends.
Some of the images include photoshopped images of Justin Bieber and other celebrities performing sex acts, as well as pictures of extreme violence and even an abused dog.
Facebook said the attack exploited a security flaw in certain browsers, which its engineering team has now blocked from being utilized on the site.
"Protecting the people who use Facebook from spam and malicious content is a top priority for us, and we are always working to improve our systems to isolate and remove material that violates our terms," said Facebook in a statement.
"In addition to the engineering teams that build tools to block spam, we also have a dedicated enforcement team that has already identified those responsible and is working with our legal team to ensure appropriate consequences."//DPA

Sexual Videos Facebook Hoax

A few people posted in the last weeks following message to my Profile, one of my Pages or Groups at Facebook:

ATTENTION: THE HACKERS ARE PUTTING SEXUAL VIDEOS TO YOUR NAME IN THE WALLS / PROFILES OF YOUR FRIENDS WITHOUT YOU KNOWING IT. YOU DONT SEE IT, BUT OTHER PEOPLE CAN SEE IT, AS IF THESE WERE A PUBLICATION THAT YOU MADE! ALSO, THEY'RE SENDING INBOX MSGS TO YOUR FRIENDS ASKING YOU TO CLICK A LINK. DON'T DO IT!! SO IF YOU RECEIVE SOMETHING FROM ME ABOUT A VIDEO OR A STRANGE INBOX MESSAGE, IT'S NOT ME! copy this in your wall. It is for the security of YOUR OWN IMAGE!!! And REPORT IT!!!!! ALSO IF U ARE ASKED TO VOTE ON A PICTURE. DO NOT GO & VOTE: IT'S A HACKER!! POST THIS TO YOUR WALL FOR YOUR FRIENDS
A Friend of mine replied with an very good explanation to this Posts. Thanks to John Williamson, I could not have said it better.


"This one is yet another viral hoax spreading like wildfire on Facebook. Note that the warning is quite vague and doesn't contain much useful information. Copying and pasting general alerts like this doesn't help anyone at all, and it's annoying to see your Facebook Newsfeed littered with them. Just spend a few minutes and check the facts before passing warnings along to your friends."
