It's a phishing.

"Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information, or data, such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.Typically carried out by email spoofing or instant messaging, phishing often directs users to enter personal information at a fake website which matches the look and feel of the legitimate site.
Phishing is an example of social engineering techniques used to deceive users. Users are often lured by communications purporting to be from trusted parties such as social web sites, auction sites, banks, colleagues/executives, online payment processors or IT administrators." (from wikipedia website)

It comes from the word fishing.

The maple that I received is a little bit different from the photos found on internet or in the books.

A plant is a living organism, and of this fact, it reacts with the middle in which it evolves. It is therefore normal that according to the brightness, the substratum or the care brought, that the individuals of a same variety, especially when they are young, present some morphological differences (color, size, or shape of leaves for example).

Besides, a book, all as internet, is a source of information that can sometimes prove to be vague or even erroneous as for the information that you can find on these supports. We are specialists of the Japanese maples since more of thirty years and we work with other Japanese, European and American nursery men, in order to correct possible mistakes of nomenclature or variety.
