Here we have another scam email forwarded by one of our visitors

There's a few things that identify it as a scam immediately
It is not addressed to anybody
A well known bank using a @yahoo email address
The phone number is a UK redirect number, rarely used by anybody other than scammers

You could also do a search on various deatils in the email
First, the email address Click Here

Normally a search on the opening line will often show some proof and if not another line from the email, in this case nothing comes up yet, it just goes to show that it's a new script and all the better to post :wink:

You Know, I thought the script looked familiar but figured it must have been rewritten with the new address.

So many different scam emails etched into the noggin :lol:

I do wonder why google isn't picking it up yet, it should be by now and I searched before posting again too :(
