Got an unusual offer today in my email
« on: June 19, 2017, 04:14:51 PM »
So, I looked at my work email a little while ago and I see this from lavasett02@gmail.com:

      Hello will you allow Budweiser  to put a small sticker on your CAR,TRUCK, OR MOTORCYCLE. For Budweiser    new product advert and receive $500 every week the program will last three months if interested  click on this link for full details of the job <link removed> .

© 2017 Anheuser-Busch Inc.
,<link removed>


Sure looks like a scam to me. Anyways, even though I could use $6000, I think I'll pass. Not interested in advertising Bud even if it was real.

Anyone else want to click on the link?

Bad grammar, commercial email from a personal email address (hacked or virus?) and a "too good to be true" aspect of 6000$ for a "small sticker"...

Yup.. that's a no.

If you preview the link (add a + to the end of the bitly url) it goes to a marketing lead gen form.  Agree that the offer sounds too good to be true but the devil's in the details.
Please do not reply if your[sic] an evil alien!
Thanks
