Be on the lookout for such emails to avoid helping fraudsters make a profit
A few days ago, experts warned users that scammers were sending out spam emails in an effort to trick recipients into buying Monarchy Resources, Inc. stock. The spam campaign continues and it’s now leveraging the situation in Syria.Security expert Conrad Longmore has come across more variants of the spam emails. In mid-August, the fraudsters bought a large number of shares at a low price, around $0.20 / €0.15 per share.
Now, they’re hoping to trick enough people into buying them to increase the company’s value. If that happens, they sell their shares and they make a profit.
On the other hand, those tricked into buying now will lose their money.
Here are a few examples of such spam emails identified by Longmore:
