India based Web Design Company Spam emails

india-scam

There are web development companies all over the world – legitimate web design companies!

A lot of spam emails claim they are part of a large group of professionals from India and they want to design your next website. Sometimes these are start-ups or inexperienced tennagers, but sometimes these are malicious emails just trying to get your information and take your money.

You’ve probably seem an email like this:

They always use an outlook email or Google email address (Free email accounts). Never a full name, phone number, company name, address, or website.

Some spammers will crawl the web to collect email addresses so they can sell them to other spammers. An email address once posted on the web is likely to be spammed forever, even if was removed from the web.

Back in 2012 there was a BBC article that said India was leading the world in junk emails. But times change.

According to Digit News in 2021 almost half of all emails sent were spam, with Russia as the top country of origin (24.77%) with Germany (14%), China (8%) and the US (10%).

Maybe I receive these emails from India because I manage a lot of domains. But I have to assume everyone who has a website gets these kind of emails (spelling and grammar as it was received).

Sometimes they use American sounding names:

As with any spam email, they get sent out because enough people will reply or follow a link. I don’t know of any other time or situation where you would encounter this type of unwanted communication.

What if you came home and there was a note on your front door that said: “I am a very good housekeeper, I work cheap hire me – Bob” Or if you received a letter from an unknown dentist that said you needed a root canal and to schedule an appointment – but it gave no address or phone number, only a first name and a Gmail address?

My name is Ryan and I run a website design firm with 70+ web designer.

These are some of the ways you can tell if an email message is spam.

The message is sent from a public email domain

No legitimate organization will send emails from an address that ends ‘@gmail.com’, @AOL.com, @Outlook.com, @Yahoo.com Etc. A legitimate company will have their own email domain and company accounts.

Always look at the email address, not just the sender. A sender can use a bogus email address and select a different display name.

The domain name is spelled wrong – but just enough that it’s almost unnoticeable.

Always check the sender's email address listed at the top of your email client. Anyone can buy a domain name from a registrar. Every domain name must be unique, but there are plenty of ways to create email addresses that almost look right.

For example g0daddy.com, goda66y.com, paypall.com, ammazon.com… A scam email usually has a fairly bizarre email address behind what looks like a genuine sender name.

The email is poorly written

Poor spelling and grammar won’t be picked up on as easily by more gullible, older people, or people who have compromised IQ’s. This is why the famous Nigerian Prince scam is still around after all of these years.

Suspicious attachments or links

Never open any attachment from someone you don’t know – just don’t do it! Especially if there is an attachment and the sender never mentions anything specific about the document.

If you get an email that looks suspicious – never click on any links in that email. However, you can hover your cursor over links contained within an email to determine if the link URL is legitimate. If you have an email that looks like it’s from American Express you would expect to see a link something like: https://www.americanexpress.com/someothertexthere. If it’s a malicious email you will instead see something like http://russianscam.americanexpress.ru – or a long line of gibberish.

Sense of urgency

Legitimate email messages should not urge you to act quickly or try to frighten you by mentioning problems with your website or how much money and visitors you are losing.

If it sounds too good to be true

The old saying – if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Also – nothing is free…

Promises of first page on Google, more visitors, free web design, hundreds of IT professionals, etc.

Hi there!

I hope you're well.

Would you be interested in this report?

I am more than happy to send it to you (free of charge of course) all I want is the opportunity to discuss how I could help improve the search traffic and customer enquiries you receive from your site?

May I send it to you?
Kind Regards,

Hello,

Hope you are doing great.

I wasn't sure if you had seen the error report for your Website listing or not but when I come across your website while checking 3-4 pages of Google Result, I found some issues in your website which can be resolved by yourself even if you are not so much technical.
So if you give me the permission, I would love to share you report for your website without any charge.

Let me know if you are interested.

Regards
Samantha
