Rebuild Iraq fraud email targeting Irish business

ESET Ireland warns Irish businesses not to fall for this variation of a fraud email, pretending to come from Iraqi-Asian Chamber of Commerce & Industry, inviting their company to join in the rebuilding of war-torn Iraq after years of US occupation.

The full message, targetting Irish business email adresses, reads as follows:

iraqiasian

The interesting addition to the email is the article from The Independent, highlighting profits of companies doing business in Iraq, although they’re mainly oil and security ones, which is supposed to convince the reader this email offers great opportunities for profit.

It is, of course, just another scam along the lines of African princes leaving you millions, winning the Spanish lottery, and other advance fee frauds, that are aimed at extracting money from the gullible.
