I recently received the following spam mail by Rohan Kumar and the account firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s awfully written and also it claims that it’s using a gmail address when it’s actually outlook.com. I guess this mail is going out in 100 different variants and just a couple of points that should trip you off are:
- no link to a website or portfolio
- bad grammar
- sent from a publicly available domain like outlook.com
I wrote them back to see which domain they would write from, but I have not received an answer yet.
