    Re: Same scam-just a different approach

    Another case where the hijackers have used a real company name - Biomet UK Ltd has a website at http://www.biometmerck.co.uk/ although they are actually called Biomet Merck. Note that the email did not come from that domain or biometmail.com which is the one listed on the "about us page".

    The telephone numbers are wrong too:

    When actually they are:

    +44 (0) 1656 655221
    +44 (0) 1656 645454

    Ignore the (0) - that's for UK callers. The area code is the bit after the +44, "20" is London, "1656" is Bridgend in Wales, which is a long way from London. You can Google those numbers and see that they've been linked to many frauds.

    Errrr of course the obvious one is the scam setup itself, that's the classic check laundering scam.

    IP address is interesting - is an AOL subscriber. I can't see any record of it being a Zombie PC. abuse -at aol.net might be a good place to send a copy.
