The Media Blog: Who’s trying to malign TheCable?

That’s the email you will get from the ‘sender’ trying to impersonate news platform, TheCable.

TheCable on Monday said the name of its founder and CEO, Simon Kolawole was being used as the sender of the above mail.

The webiste said:

This is to inform the general public that there has been a spam attack by unknown persons using TheCable’s email address as “sender”.

In a message being sent from two electronically faked addresses — [email protected] and [email protected] — the sender’s name is given as “Simon Kolawole”, the founder and CEO of TheCable.

The subject of the email is “[APPROVED] Your check for $7650!”

The message reads: Thank you for your dedication to our online cash system. We have just completed your earnings approval process and your commission check has been sent!
