I received the following spam email (I redacted identifying information to avoid boosting their Google results):
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization designed to help other companies increase their income. There is NO cost to you or your company. We simply do something you don't and pay you $500 in the process.
We are designed to accept donations of worthless real estate, timeshares, and mortgages that can't be sold, have no value, and are generally declined when offered. We assume all liability and work processing and pay you $500 at the end. While waiting for document recording all funds are held by an escrow company to protect you, the client and us.
If you wish to check us out go to the IRS website, https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos/ and enter our EIN: [redacted].
For details please go to [redacted]. You can read our details at [redacted].
To stop receiving these emails simply reply to this message with UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line.
Obviously, this isn't legitimate, or they wouldn't be advertising it via spam. Also, paying for assets that have negative value isn't compatible with staying afloat. So what's really going on here? What would happen if someone accepted this scammer's offer?
