Puremobile Inc malware spam scam
A few days ago I wrote about a spam email that I received from Bobijou Inc. Of-course it wasn’t actually from Bobijou Inc, it was from a criminal spambastard. It seems that Mr Spambastard has become fed up with wrecking the reputation of Bobijou and moved on to Puremobile Inc, as I received the exact same email from them today, but this time, purporting to be from Puremobile Inc.
The details of the Puremobile scam email:
