I love it when people reach out to discuss a collaboration or partnership, but I don’t like it when scam artists do.
You tell me if this sounds legitimate:
From: Tania Amir (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Subject: I seek your sincere partnership
I am formally writing to bring this Landmark Project to you. Kindly go through the attached Confidential Letter and get back to me or you can reach me on +(44) 770 030 8940 for more information.
Thank you and hope hearing from you soon.
AMIR & AMIR LAW ASSOCIATES
Amir & Amir Law Associates is possibly legitimate. The domain was created in 2009 and the site itself contains the information one would want to find when looking for a lawyer. I do wonder why a photo gallery was included, but maybe that’s just me. Notice the phone number. On the site, the number is. The phone number in the email includes a +44 prefix used when calling the United Kingdom. To call Bangladesh, where Amir & Amir is located, the call prefix is +11.
No, I did not download the attached letter. Never download unsolicited attachments. It’s generally not a safe move.
I will not take Tania up on this kind offer. You shouldn’t, either. There are too many red flags.
