I see these almost on a weekly basis yet can't really tell what type of scam this is supposed to be. Email arrives usually with the display name impersonating a known associate but the from header is obviously from a compromised account. The body of the email almost always is a single line with a URL pointing to a domain with an odd TLD and the URL in question has my name in it (see below for a recent example)
From: <Friend's Name> (firstname.lastname@example.org)
To: <My Name> (email@example.com)
Body of email
just something nice for you to check
I have never seen any of these links actually successfully resolve to a website so I'm trying to figure out what type of scam this is?
