some lady in Australia did turn the tables on them and spent the money they put in her account. of course it was stolen money so she ended up in a lot of trouble.

Would be fun to turn the tables though.

That's the trouble with the internet, replying to emails confirms you exist to spammers and the next thing you know could end up falling for a phishing attempt. There are some dodgy, clever gits out there, it's a battle of wits really. Clicking a link can go horribly wrong.

If I get a bill or what ever from any account I have, I always log in by writing the address in manually or from a bookmark.

Wonder if there is a site where you can input addresses from fraudulent people so that they get spammed back? I suppose if there were it could/would be misused and the activity it did considered a criminal offence anyway

Received this one a few days ago, I'd like to know who told them I was in a looney bin, still waiting for a reply from the BHC in Nigeria

ATTENTION:

Did you send Mr. Albert Okafor to pick up your ATM CARD on your behalf? He visited
our office yesterday with the story that you are not fine and had been admitted to the
psychiatric hospital. Please kindly re-confirm this news with a doctor's report to enable us
prepare an affidavit on your behalf and release the ATM card to him.

But if this information is false kindly get back to us immediately to so we can apprehend him.

We advise that you also do the needful to make sure the UKFSA dispatches your NFIU/UKFSA
SCAM VICTIMS COMPENSATION on Friday.

You are assured of the safety of your ATM CARD and availability of your funds and PLEASE be
advised that you should stop further contacts with all the fake government officials
online who in collaboration scammed you.

Kind Regards
