So . . .
I got this email promising dire consequences if I didn't comply (kind of like chain letters of old which promised my family would suffer the Seven Plagues if I broke the chain!) [I've deleted my own identifying info, but left the rest, including the misspellings]

One of the wildest phishing attempts I've seen, ever!

Any comments?

The C.B.N Bank Nigeria knowing fully well that they do not have Enough facilities to effect this payment from the united kingdom to your account, used what we know as a secret diplomatic transit payment (s.t.d.p) to pay this fund through wire transfer, they used this means to complete the payment.

Due to the increased difficulty and unnecessary security by the American authorities when funds come from outside of Europe, and the Middle East, the f.b.i bank commission for Europe has stopped the transfer on its way to deliver payment of $10,500,000.00 to debit your reserve account and pay you through a secured diplomatic transit account (s.d.t.a).

Re: A really DUMB Nigerian phishing letter!

I LOVE these phishing scams. Some great fun has been had by baiting them along (obviously with fake details & email accounts)

I assume you sent them everything they ask for right? :)

Re: A really DUMB Nigerian phishing letter!

You mean that there is $10,500,000 dollars out there with your name on it and you aren't gonna claim it??!!?? I can't believe it.

It also sounds like you could get arrested for not complying.

I'd get on that right away, if I was you!!!:biglaugh:

:sarcasm:

Re: A really DUMB Nigerian phishing letter!

Just in case the FBI DOES come after me, I put two big signs in the yard:

  • Remember Waco!
  • Remember Wounded Knee! [1973]
figuring I'll at least go out in a blaze of publicity.

The funny thing here Wes is that I work with a whole bunch of folk that were not born to remember Wounded Knee [1973].

It appears t-online.de and/or sify.com is a spam ISP, open relay, or a proxy site.
