I seem to keep being given really bad phishing emails. This one may not be as bad as the last one, but Mr. Clueless Phisher here sure needs to go back to phishing school.

[Phishing undecided whether it pretends to be from UPS or USPS]

What do you want me to tell about it? It is just there. Let me take a break, get some fresh air, stop rolling my eyes (it is giving me a headache), and then see what I can talk about it.

Subject: Your UPS package Delivery

# Package Delivery

**Dear Customer**,
As a reminder, USPS informs you that your shipment No US/293815612 is still pending instructions from you.
Confirm the payment of the home delivery costs (1,99 USD)
and the shipment of the package by clicking on the following
Arrived at USPS Origin Facility 
                              [Send My Package]

                             Sent by UPS Delivery
                        Stuttgart, Germany | 9877655651

Yeah, this one has too many giveaways…

  • So, have you decided if you are UPS or USPS? Hint: one is owned by the US government and the other is a private company.

  • It may come as a shock to you, but UPS’s email address is probably not

  • My spidey sense also tells me they are not based off Stuttgart.

  • With that said, that would explain why they are using Non-US formatting, such as comma instead of period to denote decimal place and No instead of # (or even spell number out).

  • The [Send My Package] is the link to the malicious payload. I guess it does not look too silly when compared to the rest of the email. Thoughts?

Mr. Clueless Phisher: what is wrong with you? Did you skip phishing class when they were showing how to do this kind of phishing email? What is wrong with you? I really hope your mother never sees this; I can’t help but imagine all the hard work she had to do to put you through phishing school. All those long hours she worked… and this is how you thank her? There is still time: write a phishing email that will make her proud this Mother’s Day!
