I love a carefully thought out scam email!
10 Downing street
Blah blah blah. Lol
HAHAHAHA like the Mr Cameron idea!
What I don't get is how people fall for these things? They must get some mugs handing over their card details, otherwise they wouldn't bother... but honestly, how low does your IQ have to be to start believing that one?!
Here that! It's rediculous. I get them all the time from the 'HMRC' telling me im due a tax rebate of 9k. Would be nice if it was real!
I know a few teachers who have fallen for crap like this .... does that answer any questions ?
I get an email just about every day telling me that my account with Santander has been suspended. Well I assume it's me as it's addressed to "Dear Santander Account Holder". Apparently I just click on a link and re-enter all of my personal details to reactivate the account.
I saw one on a TV program last year where a woman got scammed when supposedly claiming her win on the Dutch lottery. She admitted when asked that she had never purchased a ticket for the Dutch lottery and when questioned further admitted she had never been to Holland.

Those are a bit more believable, especially if you claim your tax back each year.....

I used to scambait all the time. If they're focussing on me, they might not focus on that elderly lady over there who'd actually fall for it..
Mr. Drew Peacock, I was named. I think my old gmail account for him still exists, actually.. Maybe I ought to start again xD
