New Death Notice Phishing Spam from Douglass Funeral Home

If you find this useful please share it!



 

Now, this is a new one: phishing spam that supposedly is a death notice of a friend; our example supposedly comes from Jason Bennett at Douglass Funeral Home.

The notice reads:

Hereby you are respectfully requested to attend the funeral of your friend who untimely, died on March 20th, 2014. The funeral service will be held at Douglass Funeral Home on March 22, at 2PM. Please come as well to share your condolence and express your sorrow.


 

More detailed information can be found here.

With best wishes,
Jason Bennett

Ironically, the spammer was apparently so inexperienced that he or she didn’t even get the linking to “here” right. (Looking at the source code of the spam reveals that it was supposed to go to a site in Poland where it would download malware to your computer.)

Please let us know if you got a copy of this, or similar, spam, and if it is different, how it differs.
