If you get email from admin@keithware.com with the subject “help me pay for my inspection ticket”, with a Paypal link to contribute $10.00 towards their fine, well, you’re not alone.

Someone using the email address admin@keithware.com is sending people Paypal invoices out of the blue, with the subject “help me pay for my inspection sticker ticket and ill love you forever. thanks”


It’s a clever scheme, and who knows, maybe he really does need the money to pay for an inspection sticker ticket. The domain keithware.com is registered to someone name Lee Dickinson, although that was not the name that was attached to the spam.

But it’s still spam, and still a scam.

Don’t fall for it!

So, there you have it. I’m curious as to how many of these things he sent out. I’ve already heard from a few people that they got the same email.

I’m also curious as to how many people, if any, actually send him the money.

As one friend put it, welcome to the newest form of Internet panhandling.
