The Pillory! Scammers, Spammers, and other Nitwits!

Posted on by

They seem to crawl out of every nook and cranny of the smelly internet. Like cockroaches, the scammers and spammers emerge after dark to attack you and your machine or website. Any computer or site, of any kind and couleur.

Phishing, code injection, outright fraud, or blocking your work. Whatever dumb fancy these guys like to follow.

We get our fair share of this kind of miscellaneous bullshit, too. You know, from creatures that won’t stick to rulez or guidelines. And as we have fun writing stuff, the RMR deck crew decided to create a pillory.

So that all those dumb fucks can showcase their highly illegal wares. On a fully indexed page, no less. Accessible by the public at large. Including enforcement agencies, and whoever else is curious enough to browse through here.

Cool, huh? Yeah, we think so, too. RockmusicRaider strikes back, that kind of thing. The attack of the Death Star all over again, have Darth Vader on your side for once. But let’s not get carried away and instead hack away at all those undesired findings.

So, let the fun begin.

05 Nov 2020 – Canadian Google Docs Scam

  • Illegal: Yes, once the scam starts

RockmusicRaider Pillory - Canadian religious nut Google Docs scam

I almost laughed when I saw that one. At the outset, there does not seem to be much amiss. Apart from some Canadian conspiracy nut meandering from bizarre Covid allegations to total religious fervor. What can I say? Thick as a brick comes to mind. And probably in cahoots with these two bonzos.

But, did you spot the scam? Right, it’s there in front of you. To the right of the ‘website’ opener, you’ll find a link to a Google Docs page. So, it’s not a website at all, it’s an edit page. At the end of the day, this is phishing, and not a very elegant attempt. Older versions of the scam were killed quickly by Google. Albeit that there’s a new one out there that downloads a key logger.

No clicking here. Shawna baby is a fraud.

RockmusicRaider Pillory - Clickbait Scam

Ye gods. This one is so old, even my native spam filter catches it. I love our smartass Jeremiah here, even if he probably doesn’t even know that his name is used in vain. But first, yes. He must be right. 32% is the difference, a sale for the netherworld of sorts. Because – boo – RMR does not sell anything, we do reviews. Now, what is this guy babbling about a shop? Because get this, we don’t have one, that’s logical, ain’t it? Not even a puny one.

This is one lazy son of a bitch, just sending his shit to everyone. And did you catch it? Even the link in the communication is false. Oh boy, another one of these nitwits who want to scam 100-year-old grannies. Because everyone else won’t function that way. But whatever you do, don’t ever click on such a link. Because if you do, all hell will break loose.

15 Oct 2020 – James Parker Web Design Scam

  • Illegal: Not quite yet, but the scam will be for sure.

RockmusicRaider Pillory - James Parker Web Design Scam

My heart is bleeding, my terrible James. So much bad news about poor ole RockmusicRaider. We’ll all be confined to the lowest reaches of that damp dungeon on water and stale bread, Google-style. And our James here found all those dire facts only after 2-3 minutes of search? Jeez, what a whiz.
Well, this particular shithead is not doing any web design for sure. The actual scam will ask for credit card details and money upfront for work that will never be carried out. And after all of that is received, James will disappear from sight forever, like.
Oh, and never ever visit this web address for ‘brandenic.com’. It’ll just try to infect your machine, so yet another site taken over by vile hostiles. No James there neither. Damn.

11 Sep 2020 – Anwalts Phishing Scam

  • Illegal: Yes

RockmusicRaider Pillory - Anwalts Phishing Scam

Oh, ye mighty Anwalts1)! We tremble before yer terrible power, yer intimate knowledge of DHL, and will click on thy document without delay. Only, we won’t. Ever. Dream on.

At least they could have offered us a few pots of gold, right? The deck crew over here has warm feelings towards treasure with all those Pirate Metal offerings all around that blog.

So, come again.


09 Sep 2020 – Probably Phishing Scam / False Credit Offer

  • Illegal: Yes
  • Vector: Email
RockmusicRaider Pillory - Loan Scam

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Clicking on any of those links will probably be lethal. And I am not sure if ‘ferri[dot]es’ are aware that their services are being used for illegal activities.

Maybe we should let the folks from ferri know?

Nitwits!


01 Sep 2020 – Amazon Phishing Scam

  • Illegal: Yes

RockmusicRaider Pillory - Amazon Phishing Scam

Credit crad bill, huh? I am not quite sure how many people these misfits think to catch with one of the most obvious scams. And sent to an account that connects to nothing near Amazon. It’s one of the most careless attempts we have seen over time, one that insults my intelligence.

And they do that on an Amazon account in about the dumbest fashion possible. Amazon don’t take kindly to people using their trademark illegally. And they got a ton of dough for legal eagles to crawl about your sorry ass to make you miserable if they find fault.

Darwin award, anyone?

9 Apr 2020 – Famagic Marine Phishing Scam

  • Illegal: Yes
  • Vector: Email
RockmusicRaider Pillory - Scam Attempt - Famagic Singapore

Ah, free money. Who would not want free money, right? Well, the address in Singapore indeed hosts marine agents. Only, no Famagic. Prettily done, something that may fool many an unsuspecting victim. I hope for these scammer assholes’ sake that the authorities in Singapore will never get wind of this. They take no prisoners.

And, the scam includes a .jar extension. Those are used for Java file type zips, meaning for applications containing code. So, never ever click on those if you are not damn sure where they come from or what they do. If you click on them anyway, a visit to Hel’s dominion might seem like a stay on a Caribbean beach by comparison. If things go wrong, that is.
