Directory fraud - the same but different

Publication: 
Editorial Staff

One of the most persistent forms of fraud, now well over 100 years old, is directory fraud. In a recent iteration, there is at least something a little different.

The fraud is a standard "your entry is about to expire" fraud. The difference in this case is the inclusion of a reference to an "e-book." The English is poor and the demand isn't particularly well structured. It appears to have used copy/paste from a variety of different types of fraud including some oblique threat to services which, frankly, don't make a huge amount of sense.

This is submitted via Form Spam on a website which circumvented a Captcha so it's reasonably sophisticated in terms of its bot technology.
