The “new shopping new life” spam

February 12th, 2009 · 91 Comments

For about a year I have been receiving spam emails like this one below. They all look like they’ve been sent by private individuals somewhere in the world (usually from Yahoo or Hotmail accounts) but advertise companies in China:

hi:
New shopping new life!
How are u doing these days?Yesterday I found a web of a large trading company from china,which is an agent of all the well-known digital product factories,and facing to both wholesalers,retailsalers,and personal customer all over the world. They export all kinds of digital products and offer most competitive and reasonable price and high quality goods for our clients,so i think we you make a big profit if we do business with them.And they promise they will provide the best after-sales-service.In my opinion we can make a trial order to test that.
Look forward to your early reply!

Looking at the mail headers, it had come from the mail account of a Danish Yahoo user, but originated from an IP address in China (details edited to protect the privacy of the account owner):

What appears to have happened is that spammers know the passwords to these mail accounts and are using them to send that spam to everyone in the mail account’s address book.

This is a very effective way to get through spam filters, as many recipients are likely to also have the sender in their address book and address book entries are automatically whitelisted by many spamfilters.

If you receive an email like that, alert the “sender” that their account has been compromised. They need to immediately change their email password to something more secure.

This abuse of stolen passwords illustrates the potential of password harvesting scams such as this one I documented in August 2008, which is still going on.

Here are some Google searches related to the hacked webmail spam:

Here is a (probably incomplete) list of websites advertised this way:

  • gvccn.com
  • ibvcn.com
  • jvccn.com
  • tvtcn.com
  • szfac.com
  • cxkeg.com
  • yaier.com
  • mmhdf.com
  • ixicb.com
  • vanigo.com
  • wabada.com
  • bj-trade.com
  • store-168.com
  • ele-motors.com
  • electronics-brand.com
  • exciting-zone.com

Common subject lines:

  • New shopping new life
  • Good shopping good mood!
  • Good web site
  • Have a great shopping!
  • good website!
  • Hi,Thank you!
  • Hi,
  • Dear friend

Good passwords and bad passwords

A strong password should be the first line of defense against such criminals, but what makes a password good? It should contain a mixture of all of the following:

  • lower case letters
  • upper case letters
  • digits
  • at least one non-alphanumeric character

This makes it hard to break the password through brute force or through dictionary attacks.

Also the password should not be too short (8 characters or more) and should be reasonably easy to memorize, so you don’t have much need to write it down. Some examples:

  • 45Knife%Cabbage
  • 4F5g6H&j
  • J0hn1945-07-31

Bad choices are passwords that consist of any word found in a dictionary, proper names, digits-only dates, adjacent keys on the keyboard or repeated characters. Never use anything like these:

  • secret
  • qwerty
  • xxxx
  • john45

It is very important not to use the exact same password for different purposes.

If spammers manage to trick you into revealing your password for one site (e.g. by getting you to create a new account at a site they control or by breaking into the database of another site where you’re a customer) then you’ve effectively handed them the key to the candy store. They can get access to your email account, in which they may find login information, password reminders, etc. of many other sites you’ve signed up for. At the very least they can harvest all your email contacts.

Beyond using different passwords for every site and service, it’s also a good idea to use a different password schema for “core” sites that you trust and depend upon (such as your email provider and webhost) and another for sites to which you sign up more casually (such as various forums, online shopping, etc.). Thus if one of the latter is compromised, it does not give criminals any clues what your more critical passwords may look like.

Who is behind this spam?

The sites advertised from the hacked email accounts constantly vary. They usually have been created only a few weeks or months earlier. For example, the domain in the above example was created two months ago:

Domain name: vanigo.com

Created: 2008-12-08
Expires: 2009-12-08

Considering the highly illegal way the companies advertised, what are the chances that any order you make at those sites would ever get shipped to you? For sure, they will gladly take your cash by (untraceable, unsafe) Western Union or take your credit card number, expiration date and security code. Never use Western Union to send money to people you don’t know from real life in person. Never enter your credit card on a site that doesn’t have SSL access (indicated by a URL starting with https:// and a padlock icon in the browser status bar) with a proper certificate.

Even more basic: Never do business with spammers. By sending you spam, they have already proven to you that they lack any morals. You have no reason to trust them and every reason to be alert!

    Hi, I lost nearly 1 thousand € because I acted in a very stupid way trusting this kind of websites. I have lost all hopes on trying to get any money back or find the people behind all this. But if you know anything about more people who had been through the same as me, I’d like to have a chat with them. Thanks, from South America Argentina.

    globseason.com has already been documented as a scam by some other sites, e.g.:

    they have also online chatwindow, so you can put a question a you / even on Sunday/ can communicate with somebody from this company. Who has got some experience, good or bad with this company
    let me know…Mila from Prague Czech

  • 13 Joe Wein // Mar 10, 2009 at 23:08

    míla,

    mmhdf.com is a scam, like all the other companies listed in this thread. They will take your money and not send you anything you ordered.

    This company also sends spam and hacks email accounts, which is openly criminal, but even with Chinese companies that are not obviously criminal one has to be careful and know exactly what one is doing in order to not get cheated, because the courts and the police in China will not be of much help to a foreigner who lost money in a scam.

    How are u doing these days?Yesterday I found a web of a large trading company from china,which is an agent of all the well-known digital product factories,and facing to both wholesalers,retailsalers,and personal customer all over the world. They export all kinds of digital products and offer most competitive and reasonable price and high quality goods for our clients,so i think we you make a big profit if we do business with them.And they promise they will provide the best after-sales-service.In my opinion we can make a trial order to test that.

    I got the following message today. It deleted all my contact entries and changed my vacation setting to ON. I have been placing fake orders on their website and pasting their message (below) in the Order Remarks section about 100 times with each order. The idea is to flood their ordering system with data intensive spam orders. If everyone who is a victim sends them such orders, they will think twice about doing this again to other unsuspecting users.

  • 17 eugene richardson // Mar 14, 2009 at 09:44

    The guys at Globseason have created another website: http://www.FDtrade.com. It has the same look and feel,and it evens says Globseason at the top. I think the scam is simple: Create a website that looks legitimate with lot of items to sell, etc. They probably are running this from some apartment in China and don’t have anything that is advertised on the website. If they can get at least 200-300 people around the world to order from them and send them money, they can easily make $50,000 to $100,000. They can then shut this website down and open another one. They probably know that the Chinese Govt will do nothing to them. Or, maybe they are even giving a share of the profits to some Government official.

    Hello Eugene Richardson,

    “fdtrade.com” is hosted on the same IP as “mntrd.com”, another scam site. I added both the spam list.

    The following sample was sent from IP 70.87.152.171, which is probably a proxy site:

    You are probably right about the Chinese government not taking action, but it’s not just the Chinese. Fake electronics stores claiming to be based in the UK, in Spain and many other countries also defraud numerous victims.

    Unfortunately international fraud using the Internet is usually not investigated and prosecuted, unless someone has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    There are just so many people who do not understand that they can not do business internationally as they would in the same city or state, because once jurisdiction issues come into it (i.e. your police can’t directly arrest the bad guys) you’re usually on your own, unless the damage is HUGE.

  • 20 Joe Wein // Mar 17, 2009 at 18:24

    A few pieces of advice to readers of this thread:

    1) If electronics sellers want to be paid by Western Union or MoneyGram, assume it to be a scam.

    2) If they sells popular electronics items more than 10% cheaper (or even 5%) than you can find anywhere else, it’s a scam. Margins are razor thin in this market. The only way someone can undercut other suppliers by 30% is by never shipping anything.

    3) An electronics website in China or the UK that prices its goods in euro is a scam. An electronics website in the euro zone that prices its goods in dollar is a scam.

    4) Any electronics exporter based in Nigeria is a scam. There are only importers there. Don’t buy from anyone in Nigeria unless you yourself live there.

    Your blog is very helpful. I got the “Re:hi” message recently in my cracked hotmail accounta bout the www .globseason.com company. You’ve already mentioned that company. Just like Eugene’s response, it deleted all my hotmail contacts and set my vacation setting to on. Pretty frustrating. I’ve since changed the password to a stronger one.

    Hello,

    I just received an email from a friend. Basically the same type of BS. I checked it out because the friend is a good friend of mine. The prices were too good to be true prompting me to buy. The website was http://globseason.com….
    I checked the site through the whois.net database and found the site only opened in january. 4 months ago. I then started researching the site online and found a few discussions about this site and how they will steal your money. I will notify my friend to change her password and I also say thank you for having this blog up.

    Good on you Joe….here is another dodgy site nshopcn.com , came from a hotmail account in the UK. I nearly bought some stuff from them….how gullible can you get? Sure enough Western Union is one of the preffered methods of payment….or straight into their bank account!

    This seems to be getting more and more common – I’ve had several friends with Hotmail accounts who I’ve had to advise to change to a stronger password. It’s not a keylogger, and I don’t think it’s phishing – otherwise I think we’d see other email providers targeted more.
    The following page features a response from Windows Live: https://windowslivehelp.com/community/t/39018.aspx implying phishing rather than a brute force attack.

    Previous examples used to include all the recipients from the address book in the To line – now I think it’s more often BCCed.

    Here’s one from today, again from a China IP:

    X-Originating-IP: [218.26.8.207]
    Subject: Hello!How are you recently?
    To: undisclosed-recipients:;

    Same text as Spaceman Spiff, different domain:

    Hello!How are you recently?
    I would like to introduce a good company who trades mainly in electornic products.Now the company is under sales promotion,all the products are sold nearly at its cost.They provide the best service to customers,they provide you with original products of good quality,and what is more,the price is a surprising happiness to you!It is realy a good chance for shopping.just grasp the opportunity,Now or never!
    The web address: (www.spamsomunged.elecshopcn.com)

    I’ve inserted that subdomain, as I’m worried we might accidentally get the spammer’s sites listed higher on a search engine by posting URLs here.

    (I note that it is sent in the same quoted-printable format, escaping commas, that Hotmail always uses. All this makes it quite hard to block as spam, except using a RHSBL/SURBL like Joe’s. There’s been a lot of webmail phishing, but that mostly seems to be centred in Nigeria.)

  • 41 Joe Wein // Jun 5, 2009 at 13:44

    Hello Stoianaka,

    unfortunately once you’ve sent money via Western Union or MoneyGram and it has been picked up, there is nothing you can do to get the money back or to trace the criminals. You have no protection against fraud whatsoever, but many people are not aware of that. That is precisely why criminals like to use it.

    Almost all Nigerian scams involve Western Union or MoneyGram and so do many scams involving scammers from China, Indonesia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine.

    WU and MG should *never* be used to send money to anyone you don’t know personally from real life. Never use it for online business. In fact, my advice would be to break off any business where these modes of payment are even just mentioned.

    This is what Western Union says for itself on its website on the subject of fraud involving their service:

    ====
    Protect Yourself from Fraud

    The Western Union Money Transfer® service is a great way to send money to people you know and trust. If you need to send money to someone you don’t know well, you may be putting yourself at risk for fraud.

    Because we care about consumers, Western Union urges you to protect yourself from fraud by considering the following:

    * Never send money to a stranger using a money transfer service.
    * Beware of deals or opportunities that seem too good to be true.
    * Don’t use money transfer services to pay for things like online auction purchases.
    * Never send money to pay for taxes or fees on foreign lottery winnings.
    * Never send a money transfer, in the name of a friend or relative, with the intention of changing the name to someone you have not met personally.
    * Never send a money transfer, in the name of a friend or relative, in order to delay payment of the transaction to someone you have not met personally.

    If you think you’ve been a victim of fraud, contact us at 1-800-448-1492.

    I have been looking at this site for some time now only because it deals with paypal so although it is listed as one of your spammer a/cs how can paypal allow this to go on?

    Concerned caribbean

  • 43 Joe Wein // Jun 8, 2009 at 16:13

    Hello Sean,

    online scammers that claim to accept Paypal often say so only to gain the confidence of people, to make themselves look legitimate. When you then place an order they will tell you that they recently stopped taking PayPal because there’s been too much fraud (what irony!) and suggest you send them money by WU if you want quick delivery.

    Another, less common scam is that they give you a PayPal address of someone they have recruited to forward PayPal payments to them. That person will withdraw the payments and wire them to the scammers by WU. When you then report the scam to PayPal and the payment gets canceled, that forwarder will end up owing money to PayPal and will have his/her account locked, while the scammers already have cash. Either way, someone always ends up out of pocket and it’s not the scammers.

    Using credit cards is not much safer either, because some bogus sellers only provide the option to pay by credit card in order to harvest credit card details (card number, expiration date, security code, billing address), to then sell that data on the black market to other fraudsters, or to charge purchases to your card. Did you ever wonder how these guys pay for all the website registrations without getting traced?

  • 46 Joe Wein // Jun 20, 2009 at 14:34

    Stef, if they can gain access to your account even after you change password, that’s scary.

    From what I gathered so far, the main way they get in is weak passwords, not something more devious such as key logging (recording all keystrokes and sending them to the criminal).

    They also can set up auto-responders or signatures to send or add their ad to your personal contacts. Could this have been the case for the most recent email?

    Check all your Hotmail settings for anything you don’t recognize. The safest of course would be to start a new mail account and ask for the old one to be closed. Personally I would not recommend Hotmail.

    During the last few months I don’t stop getting these “Dear friend” and similar messages.
    I have tried SpamFighter blocking and Hotmail message rules blocking without any success.
    Obviously I have no intention to contact or place an order. It is very annoying but I can’t find a good solution. Closing my present email account and start a new one is not practical.
    A reasonable reaction could be punishing these sites by overflooding them with fake messages. All one needs is an auto message generator to be activated against these spam sites. I wonder if this can be considered an illegal reaction.

    An article on the BBC website speculates the passwords to the Hotmail accounts may have been obtained via key logging:
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8294714.stm

    I am not convinced, because of the spam is sent almost exclusively via Hotmail accounts, but key logging would also yield a lot more other accounts, such as Yahoo or Gmail which I’m not seeing.

    @Maria:

    The have somehow acquired the password to your account. Either it was something weak, such as “1234”, “password” or the left portion of your Hotmail address, or they managed to get a password logger onto your machine. For the former it should be enough to change the password to something more secure. You should also check if additional secondary mail addresses have been added to your account, or the criminals could get back in again.

    If the problem is a key logger on your machine then you’ll have to run a malware scanner or even wipe the hard disk and reinstall Windows.

    I believe in most cases the problem is a weak password.

    I think this Chinese webshop has made me loose 405 euros last week. First I received an email from friend saying:

    “Heya,how are you doing recently ? I would like to introduce you a very good company which i knew.Their website is http://www.saleele.com .

    I inquired on their website and got all the answers quite soon. I even asked one question in Finnish to check how serious they are. It seemed they had translated my question quite right and said they are not joking but doing serious business wanting new contacts. I thought I’ll give it a try and ordered a digital camera – knowing that I might loose my money. However I did some research in the internet not finding anything serious against saleele.com. I didn’t find this website at that time.

    I paid my order by Western Union accepting the risk. First everything looked OK. They kept communicating with me after receiving the payment and confirmed the item has been shipped. They gave me an estimated time of delivery within 7 days. However on the 6th day I received the following message:

    “Dear Kevin, we are sorry to tell you that your Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 12.1 Megapixel was blocked in the custom offices now .the custom officers told us should pay the customs is 185 usd. the addational tax is 87 usd.the VAT is 33usd.the total is 305usd (205euro).
    you must pay this as soon as possible so that you can received your items in time.and if the time more long ,the customs office will require the keeping fee. best wishes to you ! awaiting your early reply!”

    Of course I now understood not to pay more money to them as it seems to be a fraud – just steeling my money. And by the way, my name is not Kevin!

  • 58 Maria // Dec 2, 2009 at 01:56

    Hi Joe,

    Thank you for the answer. I don’t think my password was weak. But maybe. Anyhow, now I have changed it. I hope that was the case.

    Jussi: I’m so sorry that you lost money to those bas****. I tried to post a quite harsh question on their site, asking them if they have been trying to send out spam from my hotmail account… of course no answer. They also have an other site with the exact same lay out, but different name (probably more sites as well).

    Thanks for this man. You have saved me £1000 that I was gonna spend on a 5D MII.

    It’s a good job that I found your blog. As always: IF IT LOOKS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN IT ISN’T.

    Thanks again

  • 65 Hacked // Jan 17, 2010 at 14:15

    Hey I found your blog when I found out my account had been phished/hacked by the same scam.
    Thanks, for confirming to me that my password details had been compromised, I have taken your advise to prevent this happening further.
    The reason I comment is to say (although it may have already been said) that the easiest way to find out whether your hotmail account has been hacked is you will receive emails from postmaster@mail.hotmail.com with the subject line Delivery Status Notification (Failure)‏

  • 66 Nida // Feb 6, 2010 at 07:20

    Hey Jussi!

    I got scammed by the same website for $420. =[
    Thank god I read what you wrote or else I was going to send them the money for customs as well. Just wondering, what happened with your whole situation? Did you ever get your item or receive any mails from them after that? Your response would be kindly appreciated.

    <3 Nida

  • 67 Jussi // Mar 11, 2010 at 06:27

    Hi Nida!

    They (Lili@Saleele) kept communicating with me for a while. Here is some quote from her messages:

    “Dear friend ,
    please understand me ,i am only a salepeople in company ,what i do is obey the decision by managers or other leaders . it is my job .
    i understand your position too ,if i were you ,maybe i am angry more harder .but the fact is that the package is in the customs office ,we must deal with it ,and about 60% of our customers have paid the customs tax for theirselves packages .
    i looked several times your daughter’ photo ,but i have no ideas to do anything for you ,my salery is about 240usd monthly ,i suggest you deal with is soon ,friend. if beyond 3days ,the customs office will require holding fee and fine .
    we have sent the copt customs file to you already ,and if you want to pay the customs ,you should pay is 208euro ,because the holding fee and fine . if you don’t want to pay for it ,i have no ideas ,but i think we can not help you again.
    regards
    Lili”

    Then I pretended to be someone else and approached “Lili” with different email address. I was asking if these “rumors” about the customs tax were true. She said there have never been any customs tax or other hidden cost ever and the rumors as such would be a lie. Then I just knew they would be liers completely because what they told me was opposite to what happened to me with them.

    From another email address I also pretended to order 4 laptops or so with them and pushed them a bit asking for discount etc. and giving them false Western Union numbers “by mistake”. They were happy to give me big discounts just to rip any money off me! Of course I never paid more ;-)

    Please do not send any money to Saleele, or these other websites including same text or layout! They don’t have anything for you! However you may want to push them a bit as well…

    yours

  • 74 Cedders // Jun 23, 2010 at 04:17

    So these examples are a scam originating in China where the victim pays by Western Union or MoneyGram and if they go ahead get tapped for even more money on some pretext involving customs. And the websites and emails of course vanish after a few weeks.

    And it’s only effective because the recommendations apparently come from contacts who’ve had their Hotmail account details compromised.

    Just these last few weeks I’ve also seen real Hotmail accounts abused to send links to web pages that redirect to an “online pharmacy”. The X-Originating-IP address in the header this time is not usually in Asia, but in any location, possibly a botnet. Presumably the list of compromised details is now circulating more widely, and I given the proportion of contacts using Hotmail I’ve had this from, I think far more than 10,000 accounts have been affected. And most of those run up-to-date virus scanners and some are quite security-conscious.

    If you’re someone whose account has been compromised, Hotmail recommends changing signature, personal security questions (although doesn’t mention the auto-responder): http://windowslivehelp.com/SOLUTION.ASPX?SOLUTIONID=1FE6ED3E-EEF6-4C57-933F-F3C408F1C5C1

    I would recommend that anyone with a Hotmail account changes their password on a regular basis.

Can you guys cite some of this scam? Can this be remedied?

    This is alarming. A spam is an annoying factor which people find very agitated to remove on their lives ( mostly on blogs). But there are also some scams on this one. A spam message sent and when you comply you got to see their message and sometimes got hooked on their message. I can relate with Mark here of stretch mark removal, when he got sent a message claiming he won USD money. I know that is a scam and not to be answered. It is not legitimate. Beware of it. There is no such thing as that these days.
