i was reading through my spam folder this morning, and i stumbled across the ultimate meta-scam:
UNITED NATIONS SCAM VICTIMS COMPENSATIONS PAYMENTS.
REF/PAYMENTS CODE: AFB/06654 $100,000 USD.
This is to bring to your notice that we are delegated from the UNITED NATIONS in Central Bank to pay 150 victims of scam $100,000 USD each. You are listed and approved for this payment as one of the scammed victims to be paid this amount, get back to this office as soon as possible for the immediate payments of your $100,000 USD compensations funds.
SCAMMED VICTIM/REF/PAYMENTS CODE:
AFB/06654 $100,000 USD.
let me get this straight...scammers are now perpetrating fake scam victim compensation payment scams? i'm really, really sad that this email didn't have a phone number on it. i could have had a lot of fun with this one.
