Scam today raised the bar, if this were a limbo contest

Another day, another invoice scam. This one on a premium trial of an exercise program by LesMills. LesMills has nothing to do with this, just happens to exist and having their name taken like PayPal had theirs yesterday.

Unlike the one yesterday, today’s scam involves a trial that’s auto-renewing (I don’t do trials that auto renew,) and came to an account that I wouldn’t be using for personal things anyway. Already a couple of strikes.

Ugh – where to even start
  • Name wrong
  • App / program I don’t use
  • Wrong email address for a personal thing
  • Reply-to address not a LesMills domain
  • You call at any time, not at anytime
  • Workout all the muscles
  • Menu options access?
  • “Please don’t miss to look at” – yes those are all words
  • With a good discount – with/at.
  • To check on different subscriptions?
  • Yours truly, not Truly yours.

The half effort continues
  • Absurd invoice number. Nobody invoices like that.
  • Wrong name again
  • Taxes are never included if the number ends in 99 – also they used a comma in the first total which is not how it’s formatted here
  • Phone number scam sure
  • Out instead of Our – proofing is key scammy people!
  • Please take a look at them on our website… but you didn’t link to even a scam page?
  • Total should not be .99 with taxes
  • Lack of branding on the PDF, lack of links to a spoof site


Spelling errors, basic lack of secondary scam web links, not even trying with a reply-to address change, using incorrect localization methods for cents, grammar and spelling, this scam I give it a D-. Sort of an ok first effort if you’re ok with nearly every other line having something glaringly wrong in it.

Also who’s the target here? Just feels like a half hearted attempt to steal my money.

You get a D-
