Email scam passing off as Zeald

Written by Emily Hall on May 27th, 2015.      2 comments

Email scams are designed to trick people into thinking they have come from legitimate senders. We were made aware of a current email scam that is trying to pass off as Zeald. We take this kind of trademark infringement pretty seriously because we've worked hard to build our brand to where it is today.

We just wanted to let you know that we are aware of this scam and don't be fooled into thinking this email is from Zeald or a Zeald associate. The Department of Internal Affairs is also aware of this particular scam. 

The email comes from a gmail account and uses the recipient's website address as the subject line.

The email content is as follows:

Hi, my name is Amelia and I am an online-strategist.

I would be more than happy to advise you on SEO and provide you with a detailed proposal outlining what I would be able to offer you and how I would achieve you with a first page listing for your desired keywords along with a FREE ranking report for your desired keywords.

Our pricing structure is heavily dependent on the keywords you wish to target for your website. If you can send me a list of your desired keywords I would be happy to analyse your website and determine where you are currently ranking and provide you with a detailed proposal outlining how I would achieve a first page ranking on Google for your desired keywords.

In the meantime, if you wish to have a look at our portfolio of clients please respond back to this email with your phone number and we will 
call-you back.

Look forward to your response.

Regards,

Do you want copies of examples of such spam to be sent to yourselves or Internal Affairs?
