Your Bank Account Requires Attention!

Post by grayman »

My memory isn't the best, but just how many bank accounts do I have requiring attention?

Here's the latest. Never been to Australia though. At least not that I remember.
Dear Credit Union Australia customer,

We recently have determined that different computers have logged onto your Online Banking account, and multiple password failures were present before the logons.

We now need you to re-confirm your account information to us.

If this is not completed by June 28, 2009, we will be forced to suspend your account indefinitely, as it may have been used for fraudulent purposes. We thank you for your cooperation in this manner.


To confirm your Online Banking records click on the following link:

Thank you for your patience in this matterm,
Credit Union Australia Customer Service
BTW, note the date.

I've been winning the British Tobacco sweepstakes on a daily basis to the tune of hundreds of thousands of pounds, so I'm covered.

If you need a bank account to stash the money, let me know.

And then I have some great investments and natural male enhancement pills for you to spend it on!
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Not to worry, my multi-million-dollar fortune is safely deposited in a Nigerian bank.

Anybody got a nice way to hook these folks up to each other and make them scam each other while accidentally letting us all see their exchanges? I'm thinking a mail relay server that you control, for instance...

Do you mind PMing me the full e-mail with headers? The link is legitimate--most likely the REAL link goes elsewhere.

The best part: the email is apparently digitally signed by the idiot's ISP, with his actual ISP email address in the "Return-path" field. Might be forged...worth a laugh though.

Wow. All I get are weekly text messages about my account at Credit Union West. Unfortunately for the scammers, I don't have an account with Credit Union West, and I live sixty miles from their only office.

Should I inform the scammers that their database needs updating?

Well, I've tried to put the people concerned with my bank account in touch with those who have told me I have won millions...

:) :) :) :)

Doubt it will work, however.

Here's something new.

I like to browse on "aircraft for sale" sites to keep up with what's being offered for sale, just in case I ever get the cash to buy my own plane.

Anyway, one site lately has had a few ads seeking ferry pilots to transport aircraft from one part of the U.S. to another. One or two ads wouldn't be unusual, but there had been several. Maybe it was the odd sounding contact names, but something about those ads didn't seem right to me.

Now that site carries this warning at the top of their pages:
FRAUD ALERT AviationClassifieds.com has had ads posted by people in need of pilots to ferry aircraft. Most of these ads are fraudulent and they are an attempt to obtain your personal information. Never give out personal or banking information to people you do not know.
Remember, if it seems too good to be true... :wink:
