It's not a new practice, we know; this kind of scam has been running for decades. But using Square Enix's name? How odd! You have to wonder whether the scammers are picking company names at random, because I can't imagine Jim Truckson from Cornhole, Idaho opening his mailbox and knowing what the hell a "Square Enix" even is.
