Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Wednesday, October 26, 2005


I am afraid that there is yet another phish going around the internet.

This one claims to come from the Bank of the West.

They want me to click on a link, and disclose my passcodes.

Needless to say it is a scam:

1 I am not a customer of this bank

2 No reputable company will ever ask you to reveal your passcodes

If you receive one of these, do not respond to it or click on the link.
