Got a strange message recently. No, actually the message itself is quite standard, a usual lottery scam. Rather than being a lucky person, I would be quite unlucky if I fell for their scam. What puzzles me a bit though is a strange disclaimer after the message (which is quite brief). Either it's completely faked, or the sender is related to Hilton somehow (or maybe hacked one of their mail systems, I don't know). Note that the scammer gives her (or his) email as [email protected]. Here is the message:

The British Nokia Group has picked you as a lucky person of a lump sum pay out of £750,000.00 Send Your Names:
Location:
Tel: to Email: ([email protected])

And here are the headers. They puzzled me even more, as I saw the Hilton domain there several times too. But, at the same time, the reply address in the email itself is a free account on Hotmail. Which makes me think again that they have hacked one of Hilton's mailboxes. Or - I have just thought about it - one of their mailboxes may be infected with some sort of Trojan which sends this message without the mailbox owner knowing it. Such cases are not uncommon, but I may be wrong, of course. So, here's a quiz for professionals. :) What do you think?

The use of # signs means this is a good scammer hiding his trail via the Hilton Hotels and the IP address is as follows IP address "167.187.100.2" is located @ United States California Beverly Hills
I enclose the full headers of the email.

Thanks, so this scammer is just hiding his real address by simulating Hilton servers' signatures and creating an impression that it was sent by Hilton? Yes, they really want money...

Ironically - Jenny Liang has struck again - this time on Canadian Soil - Offering Payment through PayPal for very expensive shoes - the connection to this is interesting as her/his hosting company for the fake PayPal account is a nokia company. Funny that this fraud above was the British "Nokia" Lottery. She had a "Google" telephone number to text to and a fake email set up as well to send and receive info about the shoes. She basically wanted me to send them - provide the shipping number and she would send the money - But the problem was - I deal with Paypal all the time and I could see that the email she responded to me with was not an official PayPal. I told her I was going to call the Police.. she said, I did not know who I was "fucking" with. Thank goodness I was able to grab my parcel back from the Post office before they shipped it!
