Bank name deleted. The original link (which I've also deleted) leads, of course, up a phishing line. I don't usually post the spam I get, but this time I couldn't resist...

I wonder what kind of memebers will get this e-mail.
I only get lots of deceit messages via cellular phone. Their tricks are really ridiculous, who will be cheated anyway?

I wonder, too, who gets tricked by these kinds of messages. But lots of people do manage to lose lots of money... I try not to make too much fun of those people, though, because I'm afraid one of these days I might be next!

Being too curious about the message is one step away of becoming their next target. If you want to dig something out, you're more easily getting into the trap. Once you're into the snare, it's hard to get out of it. Those deceitful people always have various ways to threaten or make you believe their words. I will never say that I won't be cheated under any circumstances. Just don't get confused by those anonymous message no matter it's from the e-mail or from the phone. "Never answer the hidden phone number. Once you're bothered, you'll be haunted by continuous phone calls. In addition, don’t be too greedy is also a great way to secure yourself. Anyway, we live in a world full of trickery and deceit, and the best way is always on high alert.
