    I just received an email from that orion1148 with the name Pablo saying this:

    "Hey, Do you want me to wire you the money I owe you this week or the next one?
    Answer me ASAP Goodbye,"

    I have gotten several emails from the listed orion1148 with the diplay name changing: Jasmine ("plz stop sending me your photos"), Tiffny ("STOP. I don't want your pics"), and various other sundry attempts to get my attention. The interesting thing is there is not an embedded link, so the phish must for me to reply and then it goes from there. Glad they get filtered to Junk Mail. Yes, take care out there and always look at the underlying email address behind the name.

    Some of these come, purportedly, from Google; others, from various forums. The common theme has been the startdedicated.net source. The individual server name (orion1148 here) changes periodically, presumably to bypass simpler spam filtering.

    Hello, I'm Sue Ann from Pleasant Grove, Utah. I have seen emails from this "Orion" in my SPAM box and the email says it's from Google, but I knew right away it was a lie and was the job of these scammers. I'm glad I didn't respond. It's a shame that these people have nothing else better to do with their time than send out emails like this. I hope most of the public will be aware that these emails are not from Google and the scammers are just trying to get your information. Thank you, Sue.

    this email has shown up in my spam folder 2 times in the last 2 days from info@orion. I deleted it immediately! My gut knew this was a fraud. I checked my recent google activity immediately and all was well! BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

      Thanks for posting this warning. I received this message myself 5 minutes ago and was able to determine it is a scam thanks to this message. I did not and will not respond to it.

    I received this in my mail; it really caught me off guard. I get something like this and I am not sure who to trust or what to do. As it stands I will take the advice offered by google and do nothing. What's the worse that can happen?
