Cowart's Common Room
Most obvious spam?

Today we got several emails from a foreign gentleman entitled: My last will.

What has been your most obvious spam email to date picked up from the title alone?

They have been deleted.

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I often get emails from the 'Inland Revenue' advising me of a tax rebate for my business account of around 900. They ask for my bank details so that they can reimburse me.
I have reported it to the Inland Revenue who have a department for dealing with such scams.

Westerwitch's Avatar Hah we have six couples - clearly more popular than you - we also regularly win lotteries . . . and quite often have ordained priests who want to come and stay plus there seems to be lots of errors in bank accounts I don't have. Yup also been offered tax rebates. Rolling Eyes

Re:
Salle de Bain's Avatar I used to get those obscene ones too Ivy...but recently the most obvious spams are offering me a real Rolex watch...so real in fact that it's sometimes spelled with two 'L'sLaughing

Another favourite of mine is the one from a certain bank telling me I need to update my details...the thing is I don't have an account with that bank.

Mostly banking ones here for banks we don't have in the area never mind accounts with!
