Yet another scammer

    Just received my third rambling, incoherent email in 2 months from a "customer" asking if we could produce 100 frames with mats and glass, and offering to pay with a (stolen) credit card. The first guy called himself John Kennedy; the second was Clark Lois; this guy said his name was Alfred Wayne. If anyone gets an email order from Iron Man or the Hulk, it might not be legitimate!

    I got this email this morning:

    Hi,

    Kindly have a look on the attached invoice & let us know the invoice number.

    Regards,

    (signed by obvious east Indian name)

    Thought it was a scam and wasn't about to open the attachment until I noticed, at the bottom, the name of one of our corporate customers to whom I had recently sent an invoice.

    Turns out this company has outsourced part of its accounting department to India. Good Lord.

    Got to be careful these days..........the lines are getting blurry!
