Kahtlased härrasmehed, kes nimetavad end kapten Timiks, Ryaniks või Thomaseks on asunud oma kirjadega pommitama kinnisvaraportaalides avaldatud kuulutuste kontaktandmeid.
Nii kirjutab oma korterit müüv Raimo Urgard sotsiaalmeedias teistele hoiatuseks, et petuskeemid on jõudnud ka kinnisvaraportaalideni:
„Mulle tuli läbi City24 inglise keelne kiri ühelt härrasmehelt, et tema on korterist huvitatud ja et ma annaksin parema ülevaate korterist. Kõik tundus süütu ning tegingi seda. Peagi sain aga uue vastuse, kust selgus, et ta on kindlasti huvitatud ja ei hakka üldse kauplemagi ja et tal on plaanis Eestisse elama tulla. Hetkel elavat mees Afganistanis ja tall on seal ära peidetud 10 miljonit dollarit. Kui mina aitan tal selle Eestisse toimetada, saan 20 % endale. Loomulikult palus härra mul kiri kustutada, kui ma huvitatud ei ole ja lubas kolme päeva pärast otsida uue inimese, kellelt abi küsida. Ärge siis haneks minge!“
City24 lisab omaltpoolt selgituseks, et igasugused „10 miljoni dollari kaptenid“ tegutsevad läbi meie portaali kontaktvormi „Võta ühendust“, mille kaudu saadetakse päring objekti omanikule.
Päringu ehk kirja saaja saab taolise kirja ära märkida kui spämmi, mille järel jõuab meieni vastav teade ja on võimalik spämmija blokeerida.
Näiteks möödunud nädalavahetusel oli spämmijar taaskord aktiviseerunud ja jõudnud välja saata sadu ülalkirjeldatud päringuid (igakord muudab oma meili ja IP-d).
Eile hommikul sai spämmer blokeeritud ja City24 meeskond teeb kõik endast oleneva, et petukirju kuulutajate postkasti ei satuks.
Alljärgnevalt kirja näidis, mis on jõudnud mitmete kinnisvaramüüjateni:
