    * - Normal intro ends with a colon :)), not a comma.<BR>
    * - Also "Zipcode" is normally two words... hints that folks not in the US are doing these things.<BR>
    * - The word "Limited" is used in the US, but it is usually a European tag.<BR>
    * - I did notify Google about their use of the gmail account.

    The 'dawg & I stumbled onto one a few months back. This shit-bird was allegedly from NYC, but the scam actually originated in Europe.

    Be careful.

    If these scammers ever learn proper English punctuation, syntax etc., dread the day.

    I always refer them to my home office or to contact me at the office (FBI) that stops the BS in the tracks

    The hack is coming THROUGH Germany...not FROM Germany. It's a simple matter to bounce anything off a proxy server anywhere the world and it will appear that the packet originates in the country where the server is located. That's how anonymous browsing services work: your upload is fed through a 3rd party server, given a "false" IP address and no one can trace where you're sending from.

    Kundenserver.de is comprised of a number of domains and IP addresses and is used mainly to run user-generated mailing lists. Its safety and reliability ratings are poor worldwide and it has been blacklisted by more than one test:<center>

    If you're inquisitive and are thinking about investigating by visiting the domain web sites, this warning has been issued: <center>

    I will be in Karlsruhe, Germany next week. I'll take a ride past 48 Brauerstrasse and see what the location looks like.

    I'd be willing to bet they are not Germans.

    By strange coincidence I got several phishing emails last week. None of them were abot TS but my email had to have been harvested somewhere.

    Hey Whiz,
    I just drove past 48 Brauerstrasse, Karlsruhe, Germany. It is a typical apartment building in a pretty decent neighborhood. Lots of young people and a university close by. Don't think there were many trapshooters.
