Email Scams


Email scams are getting much more complex, creative and difficult to recognize. As a digital project manager I administrate several accounts, and I’m seeing changes to the way scammers work. More importantly, my concern is that phishing emails are moving away from Nigerian princes to messages that seem to come from networks one would think could not be hacked, mimicked or represented by thieves. I have seen scam emails supposedly representing PayPal, the Better Business Bureau, the United Nations…the list goes on. I’m currently working to find solutions to this problem with a mix of known blacklisted IPs and upping the ante with stronger MX protections. That’s all for now. Happy surfing.
