Remember the stock spams send in PDF format ?
You thought they are new ?
Think again !
Now it is time for Excel format !
The mails come in a ~24Kb XLS file called “detailed invoice.xls”, “stock information.xls”, “investor_news2323.xls” and probably many others.
See the picture below for a screen shot.
What is interesting is the fact that we speak again of a stock sold at Frankfurt Stock Exchange, in Germany.
But, this time, they go big: The subject is “Turn € 5,000 into € 25,000” and the document is created by a user called “mobile”.
The username comes from the name of the company advertised in spam: Exchange Mobile
They advertise in the spam:
Company Name: Exchange Mobile
Ticker Symbol: Frankfurt: EM1
Friday Close: € 0,20
3-Day Target: € 0,35
5-Day Target: € 0,50
10-Day Target: € 1,00
Reality (source: www.cortalconsors.de)
Friday close: € 0,231
Lowest course: € 0,20
Total amount of shares: 31.090
Value of the stock : € 6.953,3
So, they want us to buy stocks in value of €5000 🙂
This means 80% of the total… they’re too good, or too stupid :))))
