    I thought the days of spam emails like this were dead: (by the way this is how it was presented)

    Attention.
    Beneficiary,

    This
    is
    to
    notify
    you
    that
    we
    have
    intercepted
    your
    parcel
    from
    DHL
    COURIER
    SERVICE,
    we
    have
    stopped
    the
    delivery
    process
    for
    some
    security
    reasons
    stated
    below:

    1.
    Our
    scanning
    system
    has
    detected
    that
    your
    parcel
    contains
    a
    conformable
    ATM
    CARD
    to
    the
    tune
    of
    $8.500,000.00
    USD.
    2.
    Such
    ATM
    CARD
    coming
    from
    African
    /Europe/Asia
    is
    been
    verified
    by
    the
    POSTAL
    INSPECTION
    SERVICE
    which
    we
    have
    directed
    our
    inspection
    team
    to
    proceed
    with
    the
    verification
    to
    ascertain
    the
    authenticity
    of
    the
    ATM
    CARD
    and
    now
    after
    all
    the
    verification
    on
    the
    Parcel/ATM
    CARD,
    having
    contacted
    the
    issuing
    institution
    who
    made
    it
    known
    to
    our
    office
    that
    the
    ATM
    CARD
    is
    a
    Genuine
    one
    and
    Not
    ILLEGALLY
    ACQUIRED.

    We
    have
    also
    forwarded
    the
    Serial
    Number
    of
    the
    ATM
    CARD
    to
    the
    U.
    S,
    Treasury
    Department
    and
    they
    confirmed
    that
    the
    CARD
    is

    and
    ready
    to
    be
    cashed
    at

    1. Yes. Because there is always someone gullible enough to fall for this nonsense.

    2. Are you trying to break vinyl's record for the longest post in CM history? (lines only, obviously the word count record is secure for ever).

    Im pretty sure that spam is often intentionally written badly, that way mostly the gullible people who might actually fall for the scam bother to even reply.

    I'd love to know what 'scanner' they use which can read a card in an envelope, simultaneously hacking into the bank's data to establish the credit limit or account balance. Maybe it's a new Casino rewards promo? :D

    They still make millions a year with their scams because every day there are thousands and thousands of people online that have no clue how the www works.
    Even if they get one person a day to pay them €300.00 or €500.00 or whatever amount, still a nice wage on the end of the month,no? :oops:

    And of course they are proud of their "job"

    I like they way they justify it by talking about those nasty fraudsters and those stolen cards and checks, this from someone who has infiltrated my private parcel and read my credit card.

    I wonder how anyone falls for them too, they are so bad to be true.
    I used to contribute to 419eater when I was younger and had time to bait them, but out of all the ones I've seen I think the p-p-p-powerbook one was up there with the best.

    I always liked this type too
