Maktoob - CashU customers database compromised?

anyone can explain what the heck is this? This email was sent to one of my emails which I was using it for CashU account; I know that phishers sometimes send their phishing email to random emails but this doesn't seems to be random as I just found that I received another copy to another email account which was associated with CashU account.

  1. I received the same email from paypal ma3 ino i don't even have a paypal account :)

  2. Bakkouz,
    Paypal scam is different; I presume that any Internet user should be used to Paypal scams but Why cashU ?

  3. this thing has a name - spoofing

    you can find information about it on the web

    and jad- people looking for ideas to make money

    mabye one day they will also write as
    contact [+@-] jadmadi DOT or PERIOD BUT NOT COMMA! net

  4. its not different, same exact email.
    its a scam. move to junk.

  5. i got a similar thing, like the exact spitting image, but it was for paypal! i dont get it though, what does maktoob have to do with it?

  6. I got this from PayPal, StormPay, CitiBank ... bla bla bla ... It is a scam

    Some people do have time on their hands ;)

  7. it's false.. cashu issued a statement

  8. I got the same email and I dont use maktoob or cashu. It must be a spammer who has a database . This has nothing to do with cashu or maktoob I think.

  9. This is a phishing attack that targets customers of CashU Card. Users receive a spoofed email message claiming that their account has been limited as a result of unusual activity. The email message contains a link to a phishing website, which attempts to capture the account password, address, and credit card information.

  10. Never heard of CashU...I REPORT ALL of these scams with full headers,of course.I never enter any account numbers in my PC and never buy or sell using my PC and I still get Chase,Bank of America,Wells Fargo,Wachovia notices as well a the usual near daily barrage of spoofs claiming to be eBay. The date is often from east of GMT...meaning more than likely an African nation. I hear they have schools in Nigeria to teach phishing and the Nigerian 419 scam letters.One scammer claimed to be a medical student (dumb as a box of rocks) and had me e-mail her "lawyer" whose writing was about like that of a 10 year-old kid. She claimed her late father left $650,000,000.She also claimed to be a US citizen and could get no help from the US Embassy to get out of Ghana.She wanted me to send her $5,000 to get back to Smiths Station,Alabama.Malarky!
