For this investigation we decided to see identify who has stolen out logo. From our investigation on the 04 July 2014 we identified 41 cases of logo theft.

Less than 5 website owner have apologized for the unauthorized use of this logo. But many website owners and business are failing to report, until they realize that we are serious about getting local law enforcement involved.

Subject: [Spam] YOUR OVERDUE LOTTERY PAYMENT NOTICE
From The MoneyGram Central Office
17 Library Place St Helier, JE4 8NH (United Kingdom)
This is to inform you that your One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ($1.5M) Lottery Win will be send to you via Money Gram Money Transfer, unless you want complete payment at a time by bank draft or ATM Card which is also acceptable by the organizers of this payment. The total amount mentioned above is with MoneyGram Payment Outlet Cotonou, Benin Republic where your payment is allocated.
These funds came to Money Gram from ONLINE LOTTERY SOCIETY (O.L.S) who said that some time in the past, they had a draw and notified all winners then and have them paid but at that time, some winners did not show up to claim theirs which was believed it's because of the payment method then so they now decided to use Money Gram to pay these people now which you are one of them.
Although some in your category claim they did not receive the notification then which we think must be the same in your case, it is also believe that since they did not like the payment method then, and they will like it by Money Gram now which is why you are getting this notification. Note that you will be receiving Five Thousand United States Dollars ($5,000.00) every day until the total amount is transferred unless you decide to receive the payment by bank draft or ATM Card all at a time.
You will be receiving Five Thousand United States Dollars ($5,000.00) every day until the total amount is transferred unless you decide to receive the payment by bank draft/transfer or ATM Card all at a time. To receive payment, contact by email (Franco Dell) the Money Gram Payment supervisor and ask him to give you the Reference Number you need to pick up the first $5,000.00 today which is after you have send him your revenue TAX. Email Franco Dell now and ask him to give you the Reference Number and every other information you need to pick up your $5,000.00 now, here is what he will require from you:
Your Receiving Name…
Your Receiving Address…
Note: The only money you will send to him is their country's revenue TAX on foreign transactions which normally cost some little amount and he will need this amount before your first Reference Number will be issued officially in the Money Gram network and then given to you, contact him now on this address: (firstname.lastname@example.org) contact person Franco Dell, (IMPORTANT) Winners are also advised to keep this notification private/secret to avoid fraudulent claim pending the transfer/claim by Winner.

I would like to know if you are interested in purchasing the domain name onlinebankingrisks.com (View Domain). Based on your contact information I see that you own xxxxxxxxxxx.com, correct?
onlinebankingrisks.com can provide an SEO boost in this market, sending new leads and new traffic to your existing site. Redirecting an exact match keyword domain is more cost effective than paying for CPC advertising (advertisers are paying $58.00 per click for these exact keywords). This domain can help improve, secure, and protect your web branding identity while bringing in relevant keyword searches that you would not have received otherwise.
The price for this domain is just $375. I am reaching out to other related businesses in the next few days, and this domain will go to the first company who replies.
If this domain is not of interest, simply reply to this email with your industry category and keywords and I can respond with available domains.
