Warning of bogus emails you may be getting

In case you haven't seen this, it's mainly being mailed out to those who are the main contact or the person who purchased the licenses of AutoCAD or Inventor, etc. Obviously this is a scam to get who knows what, most likely money among other info from you.

 

Note the text in Green, it shows up as white text in the original email and I just happened to notice it when I viewed it on my phone at a specific angle. Try and figure out what the deal was with this.

 

The email (yes it was repeated numerous times in the same email):

 

Subject:AUTOCAD 2013 Full version
From:dorothy malin <bryantdafne2677@gmail.com>
To:smileyfrustrated:ir/Madam
Cc:


Athletic director Pat Haden said Enfield has reached an agreement with the Pac-12 school. He will be introduced on Wednesday. .

 It has come to my attention that you might have an interest in purchasing AUTOCAD 2013 Products Full version .
 
  I am selling AUTOCAD 2013 Full version   --- the FULL  version, besides  it does not need to  go through the  "Activation" process.
 
 Although this is a  not an "official disk" it works exactly the same,and has even more benefits. Since it has no activation files, it can be installed unlimited times on as many computers as you like which is a big plus!
 
  The only down side to this is that there is no Web Based Support from CAD/CAM COMPANY  because it was not bought from them. It's functions is  all the same as  Store_Bought programs.
 
  I'd be willing to sell it to you for a very low price of $150 USD .-plus a small shipping & handling fee.You simply cannot beat this offer. This would cost you more than  $5000 USD.-plus tax in any store and you can only install the store bought version on one computer. As I said there are not any limitations or restrictions with this type of version other than the web-based support, but who really needs that anyways?  I don't.
 
  If you want to purchase any CAD/CAM  email me with your shipping address and I will even send it in advance.
 
  You will receive it in 4-8 business days  and check it out for free to see if it is in perfect condition
  (just check out whether it is readable on your system or not) just open it up and see if your computer can read the files and if so then it will work with your system. Then email me back and let me know.
 
  After I get your payment via an online-payment service such as Western Union which usually seems to work best for most people.
I will email you the code-number to install the programs .This is the best method to do this type of business online....
for all parties involved.
 
  I hope to hear from you soon.
  Thank You,

Apologies for yet another column discussing the merits of the Miami Heat , but there¡¦s an interesting confluence of events happening right now in NBA circles. Several members of the 1972-73 New York .

Re: Warning of bogus emails you may be getting

I saw this posted in another group, but I can't find it now.  I Googled,  but apparantly I don't have privledges to view that page :smileyfrustrated:

 

 

I was wondering if it is someone trying to scam you, or just scamming AutoDesk by actually doing what it says: selling pirate versions of the software.  Either way it's obvioulsy criminal.

 

Did you notice this white text at the top:

"Athletic director Pat Haden said Enfield has reached an agreement with the Pac-12 school. He will be introduced on Wednesday. ."

Again it was in white, so hard to see, right at the top of the email you pasted in.

I did miss that text, thanks.

 

I'm thinking whoever it is got hold of ADesk's emailing list and are looking to take advantage of it and make some money in the scam.

 

The key piece is that they are requesting payments by Western Union so you'll have no recourse to get your money back like you would if you used PayPal.

 

I'm hoping ADesk is actively looking into this matter and nail this scammer.

Copyright is a civil matter, rather than criminal. of course with statutory damages for willful infringement, thant can be worse.
