    This one amused me :)

    I just looked at my e-mail to check on delivery of some business cards and found this beauty:

    Dear Customer ,

    We are sorry to inform you that your account
    has been suspended.

    A high number of failed login attempts have been
    recorded on your account.

    As a security measure we had to temporarily
    suspend your account.

    To restore your online account we have attached a form
    to this e-mail.

    Please download the form and follow the instructions on your
    screen.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    I do not, and never have had, an account with HSBC or any of it's predecessors..................hang on though...........what about that $30 million I got for laundering that Nigerian's uncles account?

    What really hacks me off is that they actually think I would use internet banking.................huh! if I did that I wouldn't get to ogle the wimmin and steal the free pens

    Anyways there is a "real ale" pub between me and the bank................I have never found one of those on the internet!



    This post probably belongs in Tech Humour on this site, but it is a real scam that I just received.

    Good week-end folks
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Got one like it yesterday myself.
    Chase was the bank listed. Never done business with them.

    ogle the wimmin and steal the free pens
    I see we agree on those points.

    You never know, it may very well be the Irene Adler's of the world who get people into wire fraud.
