'Scaming/Phishing' en LinkedIn

Hace poco más de un año subí un post acerca del pishing en Facebook, pués bien, ha vuelto ha pasar, pero ahora en LinkedIn.

Ayer por la noche recibí una solicitud de amistad en LinkedIn a la vez que un mensaje de una tal Sara Weller que trabaja para un reconocido banco del Reino Unido:

El mensaje original no lo he podido encontrar pero básicamente decía que quería tratar un tema conmigo un tanto delicado y que para más informació le enviara un correo personal para que me mandáse más información.

Al principio ya sabía por donde iban los tiros pero tenía una curiosidad por saber que habría en el siguiente mensaje (este si que lo tengo!):

Dear Albert

Thanks for reply to my personal email regarding my business proposal to you, i know this will come as a surprise to you but let me formally introduce myself to you.I am Sara Weller Independent Director at Lloyd's Bank. I am contacting you concerning an abandoned sum of ₤22,500,000.00 GDP. In June 2005, A customer called Fernando Albert a foreign contractor with Royal Dutch Plc came to our bank for business discussions and investment, As the officer in charge of his transaction then, I encouraged him to consider various growth of funds with prime ratings. Then he invested Nineteen Million Five Hundred Thousand Great British Pounds only. Based on my advice, we were able to spin the initial deposit with profit and interest to 22.5 million Great British Pounds. After few months; My bank (Lloyd's Bank) sent several notice to him without response and unfortunately, my client died in a car crash along with his nuclear family at France while on sabbatical in the summer of 2008, may their soul rest in peace. He died without leaving a Will and several efforts were made to find his extended family through your embassy without success. Because of the sensitive nature of private banking, most customers don't nominate next of kin in their investment, also usually in most cases leave their WILLS in our care, in this case; our now deceased client died in-testate. It is quite clear now that our dear client died with no known or identifiable family member. According to practice, the Private banking sector will by the end of this year broadcast a request for statement of claim to Lloyd's Bank, failing to receive viable claims they will probably revert the deposit to the Management of Lloyd's Bank. This will result the money entering the Lloyd's Bank accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of Ten {10} years the funds will revert to the ownership of the United Kingdom Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

Now, I am prepared to give the necessary details to you as the closest surviving relation of our deceased customer (Fernando Albert). I am also proposing that after a successful execution of the business deal, the funds will be shared in the ratio 40/60. You will get 40% and I will be entitled to 60% as the initiator of the deal. You know that I must have done my home work already before contacting you. Although the project is capital intensive, I know I will be able to pull it through following proper banking and legal Channels with your assistance at your end. I will tidy up the legal aspect with the assistance of a lawyer who will prepare all the documents that will be needed to transfer the money from The United Kingdom to your country. Once more, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you, I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive; do not destroy my career. Opportunities like this only comes once in a lifetime. I am a family woman and this is an opportunity for me to give my family the best in life. I would want you to think about this and let me know your decision. If you give me a positive response, I will give you the relevant INFORMATION for the successful transfer of these funds and we both enjoy it in peace.

If you give me positive signals on my email I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you not contact me via official personnel else I will deny knowing you and about this project. You can also check on my biography from this link as wellhttp://www.lloydsbankinggroup.com/our-group/directors/ you can also call our official line +0845 3000 000 but do not talk about this transaction or I may deny knowing you, when you call? Ask of Ms Sara Weller (Lloyd's Bank) and if I am on seat, then your call shall be transfer to me, what I will want you to do is to abolish the call before I talk because my official line are not secured means to reach me bearing in mind, the nature of this transaction, because they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management.

I await your response.
Ms Sara Weller
Directors - Lloyds Banking Group plc

En resumen, se inventan un personaje del Reino Unido el cuál ha muerto y ha dejado una sustanciosa cantidad de dinero a nombre de nadie. El objectivo es obtener datos y estafar a las personas que mandan este correo, así que no os dejéis engañar.

Hago este post para alertar a toda la gente que, como yo, haya recibido este correo.

El correo desde el cuál me han mandado el correo es: saravweller1@gmail.com

Aquí podéis ver el perfil fantasma de Sara Weller: AQUÍ

Lo gracioso de todo esto es que en la parte de aptitudes de su perfil, se puede ver muchos mas perfiles de personas que han valorado sus aptitudes, pués bien, esas personas también son perfiles phishing donde también se pueden encontrar AQUÍ

Aparentemente parece una página oficial pero no lo es.

Página oficial: http://www.lloydsbank.com/
Página de los scamers (estafadores): http://www.lloydsbankinggroup.com/

Eso es todo, espero que el post pueda ayudar a más gente a que no sea estafada o simplemente a prevenir que lo hagan. También, para que LinkedIn cierra todas esas cuentas phishers cuánto antes.

Un saludo a todos.
