Classic example of identity theft – known brand name used to pull you in; plausable story as well – then they have you.

It appeared as an email to “undisclosed recipients”.  For those that get taken in by these attempts at Identity Theft this one had an intriguing angle.  The names, said the email, had been drawn from the Samsung database of telephone and internet email users.  At some point I may have been on the Samsung web site and asked for some information.  There were none of the usual spelling mistakes.  But the language gives it away. 

What would you have done with this one?

Had you responded you would have given away a lot of information about yourself that someone would be selling to people who are never described as nice.
