Hour Advance Loan Approval Department Phishing Scam

Another phishing e-mail has popped up. This time phishers are using "Hour Advance", a giant lender network that offers US$1000 Personal Loans in as fast as 1 Hour. The e-mail was sent from this spoofed e-mail address "Loan Approval Department (office83872@replatgrey.info)" and has the subject "Loan Approval Department". If you click on any of the links in this e-mail message, you will be redirected to http://metaas.info/80445/SXK74560, which is a spyware and malicious website.

    Do not use the unsubscribe links in the e-mail messages because, you can be redirected to a malicious website and get your computer infected with a malicious program without you knowning.

    Secondly, as you have said, your email address can be sold or use to send more spam or malicious emails to you.

    I've been receiving 2 or 3 a day. At first, I just sent them to spam. Then I opened each one and followed the "unsubscribe" hoping that this would put an end to this garbage.. cumbersome and such a waste of time! I still kept getting them. I responded to a couple w/ threatening messages... still nothing. I finally wrote with snail mail to the flamingo rd address mentioned.. my letter was returned saying "address does not exist".. I give up! Now I'm afraid everytime I unsubscribed w/ my email address, they sold it to other crooks... UGH.. So the best we can do is send to spam?

    Punishing people who are responsible for these malicious acts are hard to do. These people can be anywhere in the world and can move from one location to another, in a few minutes. The FBI and other law enforcers, both locally and internationally have been able to shutdown most of these operations. But it is hard to stop these people because technology makes it easy to do these malicious acts.

    How can we put this crook in jail?

    The only thing you can do right now, is to filter the e-mail messages as Spam/Junk.

    I too receive 2 or 3 unsolicited & unwanted "junk e-mails a day from the above and unsubscribe to no avail. I copy the fcc with each one, also to no avail.What's the answer?

    Now I'm trapped - they have my address...the one that I've had for years and years! AUGH! I too continue to get up to 10 emails a day and am not sure how to stop it as they all come from different "addresses" but are obviously all from this same sender. Scum

    I've been receiving about 3 spam emails a day from "SCF, LLC - 1350 E. Flamingo Road #700," advertising everything from phony "cures" for diabetes to ambulance-chasing lawyers. I haven't seen any emails so far that link to malicious sites, but it doesn't surprise me at all that they'd be involved in phishing.

    Emails are typically routed through servers in Romania.
