Similar e-mails are being distributed naming businesses that it is common for financial services businesses to deal with. SWIFT and Western Union are the bait for the unwary. HSBC in Dubai makes an appearance, too, to increase the credibility of the scheme.

The mails purportedly come from admin@vephota.tk and originates from 202.158.245.10 which is a permitted sender for that domain but reverse DNS lookup failed.
