Stupid Punts!


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

There is another PayPal phish doing the rounds.

This one claims that there has been some unauthorised activity in my account, and asks that I click through on a link to verify my account details etc.

This is a phish, designed to trick you into revealing your account details.

If you receive one of these do not click on the link, throw the mail away.
