Warning about possible science journal scam

  1. Sep 20, 2012 #1
    I am referring to inappropriate emails received at some UK government inboxes.

    I am highly suspicious of this since

    1) It was addressed to inappropriate personnel viz experts on the wrong fields.

    2) Note the 'charges' highlighted in red.

    3) The English is not quite right.

    4) It is not clear how these people obtained internal government email addresses.

    5) The internet suggests this is actually an outfit based in India.

    Just because you are a Phd, Msc etc don't believe you can't be fooled so beware.

    Any kind of unsolicited email such as that is high suspect.
