This is what I found in my mailbox. To think that some people could possibly be stupid enough to respond is hard to imagine.

I just wanted to share just in case you were another local user who are scratching their head over this too. At least this one is simple, they didn't spend too much time on details either. Straight to the point asking for username and passwords.

I find some of the email scams entertaining, funny in fact. I always get a kick out of them and wonder how many different ones are around.
Some are complicated and almost believable because of the effort they put in designing them and making them look legit, others are so simple that it must have been a passing thought.

I know eh. I remember getting one from the FBI..telling me that they have reason to believe that my bank account was being scammed. A bank account I don't even have. But they wanted to pin numbers and account numbers to stop this from happening. What a joke. I laughed when they signed it, "the FBI"
