Stupid scammer search-and-replace tricks

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 10:54 am

The latest phishing attempt sent to my UGA account has the following as one of the lines that’s supposed to be filled out:

“Country or TerUGAory : .. …….”

Why do I have the feeling this scam was originally intended for students at the Rochester Institute of Technology?


  1. funny you mention that. i got an email that stated the “Country or TerUGAory” also. i wasn’t too sure what that was so i googled it, and your site came up. did you receieve 2 emails about the terUGAory and another one after that telling you to confirm your email by sending your username, pw, dob?

  2. I know I got a different phishing e-mail that didn’t have the ‘terUGAory’ stuff, but I can’t remember the details of what exactly they wanted. All I recall is that the grammar wasn’t the greatest…
