SECURITY ALERT : spear phishing campaign

SECURITY ALERT : spear phishing campaign


Dear Customers & Partners


Your security is the first concern of ELDIM’s team!


A Spear Phishing campaign is currently ongoing.

The bad guys are using ELDIM’s name, reputation and references in an attempt to steal information or maybe money.


Here is a sample of sent emails


From: Thierry Leroux [mailto:t.leroux@eldim.biz]
Sent: Wednesday, July 22, 2020 5:40 PM
To: xx@xxxxxx.xx
Subject: FW: Fwd: Hi XXX


Hello XXX,


Nice to receive your response. We are acquiring a Bio-science machine from XXX and we need a Representative that can handle it from outside France. We solicit your assistance due to the fact that we have exhausted our import quota for products from XXX and the new unfavorable monetary policy which makes money transfer take longer to process from France.


It will be easier and quicker if we can get a Representative to handle it from outside France and since you are one of our distributors we thought it wise to contact you to be part of this new project.


Kindly let me know if you can handle it so I can send you the details.




Thierry Leroux
