Phishing: Loreal Home Model & Makeup Overstock

by | Apr 18, 2020 | Case Study

Hello Holly!

As I’m sure you are aware, the Covid19 crisis is affecting shipping and transportation. As well as preventing us from our normal marketing routines. As such, L’Oreal America is giving out some of our overstock to individuals for promotion. As well as adding select qualified individuals to our “model from home” program.

I am happy to inform you, that you have been selected to join our model from home program. If you accept, you will receive a significant amount of L’Oreal top shelf product and a monthly stipend of $5,000.

We just need to do a quick background check first. I will need the following information. It’s easier if you just email me the information rather than having you fill out the form yourself!

  • Date of Birth
  • Social Security Number
  • Current Address
  • Bank Account Number
  • Phone Number

I hope you understand the rarity of this situation and will take full advantage of it. You have 24 hours to accept and send the background check information. This opportunity  will not be extended or offered again.

I look forward to working with you!
