Graphic Design Phishing Scam - Elion

In a perfect world scammers wouldn't exist, but since they do I'm collecting all their messages out there for other designers.


First message:


Name: Elion robert

Email: elionrobert09@gmail.com

Message: Hello, i want you to help me with my brochure design


Seems legit since it was so vague. My response:


Hi Elion,

Could you send me a little more info on the type of brochure design you are looking for?

# of pages, size, etc.

Do you have the information already that is to go in the brochure?


Thanks!

-Lauren


Their response:


Good I have a new establish company I need a designer company Name: PROGRESS FURNITURE. This company is really based on Importing & Exporting of Furniture: Kitchen Cabinet, Sofa, Office Chair etc.


HERE ARE THE DETAILS AND PROCEDURE OF THE JOB:

1) Company Name: PROGRESS FURNITURE

2) MY WEBSITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION WHICH WOULD BE REGISTER VERY SOON

3) I DON'T HAVE LOGO BUT NEED A CUSTOMIZED LOGO FROM YOU

4) I COULD ONLY SUPPLY THE TEXT CONTENT AND PHOTO ALL ARE WITH MY PROJECT CONSULTANT BUT THE ARTWORK WILL BE DESIGNED BY YOU

5) I WANT THE BROCHURE TO BE TRI-FOLD IT WILL BE FRONT & BACK THE TEXT AND THE PICTURE IS APPROVED AND CROSSCHECK

6) THE SIZE OF BROCHURE IS 8.5 X 11.


That all I can provide from my means and I hope you understand what I listed above I need more perfect Job. If you can handle this for me you will be my permanent graphics designer and I will meet you in person after this design is done, due to my trip to get some stuff for my company. I will be needing 2500pcs.


I would be very happy to hear from you on time.


Thank you.


ONCE AGAIN ALL CAPS! This should be your #1 indicator. And a simple google search confirms this is a spam.


Sorry Elion I do not want to meet up with you, maybe if this is you, I might consider it:
