Is it Monday yet?
Maybe, but it's a holiday. I wonder if we'll really see the news today.

A Google for Aletta Photographic yielded an interesting result:

Aletta 4 x 5 Large-Format, Make bellows - eBay Stores - items on ...
stores.ebay.com/Aletta-Photographic

Clicking through it it no longer shows a page though.

Are you sure? I only ask because I recieved the following email from him last month. I don't know if someone hacked his email, if this was an honest request, or what, but I ignored it as phishing.

Help Request,

How are you doing? Hope all is well with you and family, I know this might be a surprise to you but I am sorry I didn't inform you about my traveling to Scotland for a Seminar.

I need a favor from you as I've misplaced my wallet on my way to the hotel where my money,and other valuable things were kept and I will like you to assist me with an urgent loan of $2,500 U.S Dollars to sort-out my hotel bills and get myself back home.

I will appreciate whatever amount you can afford to help me with and I promise to pay you back as soon as I return home.

Here are the details to help me send the money through Western Union

Receiver;s Name: Yvon Bourque
Address : 21 George Street,
Edinburgh EH2 2PB, Scotland

Send me the below information's.

Sender name:
Mtcn:
Amount sent;
address:

kindly help me make the transfer as soon as you receive this email and once you have it sent, send me the transfer control number with the Receipt used in sending it. Also do let me know how you want me to pay you back so I can make the arrangements to get it to you as soon as I get back home.

I've seen this exact email many times before. It is definitely a spam/phishing email and was not written by Yvon.

That kind of email is called scam, not phishing. Both are types of spam.

I don't know if it's the case with this mail. But the worrysome detail is this:

Spammers maintain graphs of mail adresses.

So, in many cases they succeed to make the mail appear as if it came from a person's email address you know and using the persons real name WITHIN the mail.

What has been hacked in this case is the receiver's mailbox, not the sender's one. Not hacked in the usual way (so, no worry here). But the receiver left to much traces in the internet who he knows. Social networks are the typical trap.
