Looking to refinance your house? Install solar panels? Hey, this email about refinancing (or solar power) looks good. But is it really? Is it legitimate or just spam for a fly-by-night outfit? Spammers are constantly trying new tricks to make an email look legitimate to the recipient while still eluding spam filters. Those filters that rely only (or mostly) on content filters can stop common phrases easily enough, but if those phrases are written using non-standard characters, it becomes much more difficult to allow for all possible characters that look like standard ones. This is one of the latest tricks of spammers. Take a look at this screen shot of a recent email about the government HARP mortgage refinancing program.
