Today’s fake email of the day

Hi Dear,

How are you doing hope you are fine and OK?

I was just going through the Internet search when I found your email address


So you care about an article titled “
Trap CtrlAltDel; Hide Application in Task List on Win2000/XP” in 2020 and downloaded its source code, but still don’t know my name?

Also when I read the message header (it is called view source in hotmail or view original in gmail)
From: Lisa Williams
X-Mailer: WebService/1.1.16718 YMailNodin Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:81.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/81.0
Content-Length: 572
X-IncomingHeaderCount: 14
To: Undisclosed recipients:;

So this is a bulk mail, I am BCCed. Kinda strange to do for a letter that express love interest. But Kudos to keep your Firefox version up to date! Although the scammer can lie here too if wanted to just like everywhere else, there is nothing really beneficial to say you mailed it from Microsoft Outlook Express.

Also in the mail header:

Received-SPF: SoftFail ( domain of transitioning discourages use of as permitted sender)

I wonder why…
