    Question Is SoloPay new Internet payment scan?

    Anyone know what's the deal with this SoloPay emails? One of my users has been bombed with a bunch of these where the FROM name is different for each email (email body is the same).

    Me suspects it's some sort of scam based on a PayPal type of service.

    Let me know if you're seeing this too. Call me suspicious and untrusting!!!

    Example email:

    The FBI have a nice online computer fraud reporting service. I would suggest giving them a try

    It is a scam.................no-one has names like those in the list! make even AO nicks seem "normal"

    Question #1..................did you request this information?................no?.........then it is SPAM, and if it is spam, it is a scam.

    Take care and talk to the FEDS

    Thanks for the post, though. I immediately blocked @solopay.com from my SMTP server.

    Always a good idea to keep ahead of the junk when possible.
