Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

Wednesday, May 09, 2007


The following phish is doing the rounds at the moment, it purportedly comes from Cahoot.

The link that the scammer invites the recipient to click on takes the recipient to a false site, designed to trick him/her into revealing their account access codes.

The scammer is illiterate and, as if to deliberately wreck his credibility, signs off from another bank (Nationwide).

Dear Cahoot Online customer,

The bank congratulates you as a devouted customer and rewards you with a shopping cheque of 500 pounds, but

We were unable to send your reward cheque due to a possible error your home address information.

This might be due to either of the following reasons:

- A recent change in your personal information .
- Submitting invalid information during the initial sign up process.

Consequently, we placed a temporary restriction on your account. We did this to protect your account from any fraudulent activity.

Please verify your information :

Thank you,

Nationwide Customer Service
