  1. thanks for the information. I'm sure anyone who receive these kind of email will be aware to not open the email. They must be do a background check to make sure if it is scam or some important emails that they do not know.

    1. not sure why having a boyfriend would mean no one would search your background... but whatever

    2. This is one of the funniest things I've read all day.

      I don't have a boyfriend. (I'm a man, and I'm straight.) Does that mean I might be in trouble?

  10. I am currently receiving these background check emails. And, they have caused me a lot of concearn. Due to the fact, that I am currently in email correspondents, with a number of organisation's. And I have,questioned, they're involvement, in requesting said, 'unwarranted' background checks.I am thankfull for your site, and for highlighting this email scam. Thanks to chaps like you, people like us, can not only find information which educates us. But, you have saved me, from accusing business associates of doing such background checks. Sincerly, THANKS GUYS.

    1. hope the organizations and business associates don't care about your horrible grammar....

    2. Grammar so what!

      Life must be SUCK for you if you care so much about grammar.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I mean, the grammar is bad. But really, if us scam haters are hating on each other it doesn't really help anything or each other. Let's all save our hate for the actual douches responsible. May they all get ebola and die. See, like that, directed hate at Nigerian scam rings.

  11. please remember that those that do these dispicable scams, will change they're styles and approaches. So please, be on your guards, against these scammers. And wherever possible - if you have the skills, research who these scammers are, and shut them down. Becouse they cause, not only distress, and false accusation. But they do create, mistrust and financial difficulties.

  12. Thanks for stopping me from opening. I did recently order cheap meds from Cananda of course they never arrived. I think they just scammed my info.

  13. Thank you so much for your site....I received an email from IBC Updates re: someone just ran a background check on you-view results
    Of course, I started to worry since I don't work. But thanks to your site I decided NOT to open this and mark it as spam.
    GREAT JOB GUYS......Thank you LORD for people like these that actually WANT to help us other non-computer savy folks.

  14. I have got those also and opened them. What is the danger of opening?

    1. These scams have codes embedded in them that lets the sender know if you've opened them. Many also have malware that automatically downloads into your OS the instant you open it. Best to delete UNOPENED.

  15. I received two emails ten minutes apart from ICM stating someone ram a background check on me. Aggravating. These jerks need to get a life.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I just received an email, stating it was from ICM saying that my back-ground files may be available in their system, and it provides a link to click if this is an error or I would like to run my own background.

    http://reverse.greateyeprice-today.us...................
    That is the beginning of the link. I am NOT clicking but this is the first suspicious email that has made it through my junk filter in 5 years. I'm a little concerned as to what caused it.

  17. I got it too, and also got an email from a long-lost ex-boyfriend who is a thief and lifestyle-convict. Aside from the alarm that he has not lost my email and that he still thinks of me (at least as a target),I also noticed a grammatical error in the subject line. It said, "Someone run a background check on you, View Results." It should be "ran," "has run," or "may have run." This glaring unprofessionality alerted me to smell a rat.

  26. These seem to come in droves. Won't see one for a few months then all of a sudden the spam box will have a 1/2 doz of them for weeks. Probably because I clicked on one once but never went to the site. Still creeps me out and glad there are sites like these that explain them.

  27. i got a email to saying someone posted someting bad about me!!! from Background Check Alert (ICM and it also said something about im.happytobeafish.com so stay away from them i did...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I got one today, and it was very dirty and offensive. Why would a legitimate company send that to you? Answer- because they aren't. They are scum. I was suspicious from the start. Thanks to others for sharing similar comments. Well done all for not falling it. John Ellis Francis (aged 29)

  29. I also received a couple of these emails. one said some one did a back ground check . the other said my criminal back ground will be available to the public. I do not have a criminal back ground. not of any sort. it freaked me out , made me wonder if someone had forged one somehow.

  30. I have gotten the "Bad Things Will Happen" email for four days now. Each time it is from someone different, and not always ICM. Microsoft suggested I send it to the FBI which I did. I got the same content email from Nicegreataliens.......THIS IS NUTTY!!!!

  32. After having received so many of these in my Spam folder, I decided to do a search to see if anyone else was getting these. I am sorry you all are getting them too, but happy that it is just a bunch of crap sent out to a lot of people like me! Thanks for sharing.

  33. I have also receive them and another that looks exactly the same stating I have a sexual predator living in my area also a scam.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't think it matters if you just open them and then delete them. Just don't click any links or download any attachments.
