    New email scam

    So I'm not sure if this is A: already on AO as my search didn't show anything and B: I don't know if it goes here or not since there's no other place I figured it would go.

    Onwards...we've all seen the emails about banks, death, passed around and some poor soul needs YOUR info to get it into the USA/etc...

    I just got this today:

    Subject - "Get back to the bank immediately."
    From - "Union Bank" (from is listed as, reply is listed as

    From: Union Bank
    Attn: Valuable Customer
    The bank wants to reliably inform you that your name and
    information has been found attached with one of the bank
    most valuable customer whos sudden death came as a surprise
    to the bank.
    In order for the bank to be transperent and truthfull to
    its customers and also not to be involved in the fraudulent
    act which booms round the banking world. The union bank

    Let the bank know if you would still want to run the
    account with us or you would prefare the money transferred
    to you.
    You are advised to get back to the bank through this email
    address below

    Did a whois on that and came up the attached info.

    Registered to someone in SD, CA on Jan 5, 2005 for a three year deal...and I thought I had seen them all!
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    Now, if I had recieved that from No. 10 Downing Street (our Whitehouse), I would have believed it............but not from a bank.............they are semi-professional organisations aren't they?
