For the last 2-3 weeks clients of Grimpond Marketing and My SEO Guy may have been suffering email issues and bounce backs. This is because our server(IP) was added to an internet SPAM blacklist. This blacklist was then used by a number of Australian ISPs to block email originating from our server or related to our server/IP.
We have just received notification from a client that they received a call today from a person with an accent claiming to be from Grimpond Marketing.
Much like the Telstra/Windows/SEO phone calls that we all get, this scammer wanted access to the client’s website and/or computer and started on her ‘spiel’, but was cut off by the client who was savvy enough to know it was a scam.
One of your clients unfortunately fell foul of PayPal scammers recently.
He followed the links in an apparently legitimate PayPal email, which lead to what appeared to be the legitimate PayPal website. He dutifully signed in and entered his password, filled in his details, updated his credit card. All good…
