Dumbest email spam this year: Your ATM Card Is Ready

As a nice change from the spams I get concerned about my, well, male enhancement, I got this astonishingly stupid one today:

Dear Sir,
This is to inform you that your ATM CARD has been credited with your fund
and it is ready for use. You are required to provide the ATM department with
your information such as:
FULL NAME:…………………….
ADDRESS:………………….

……
PHONE NUMBER:…………….
NOTE; There is a delivery fee of $185 before we shall dispatch the Atm to
you by courier, please take note before forwarding your information.
Please contact the ATM department on this email {removed to protect the identity of the stupid} for
the release of your ATM CARD immediately.
Congratulations.
Regards,
Dr. Stupid,
The Director of ATM Department Zenith International Bank Plc
Umm, if it’s my ATM card, shoudn’t they already know my name?  Does anyone fall for this?

  1. Sadly a lot of people due :(

    Dateline did an interesting story about catching an ID Thief and started tracking back the spam and just kept following the trail 2 years later and in Africa they “met” the closest person to the organization who in the end admitted what it was and said, “What are you going to do about it?” and left the room.

    Scary -

  2. You’d be amazed what people fall for: I’m a former attorney, and acquaintances ask me regularly about remedies against scammers that have their money or their elderly parents’ money.

  3. Yes, this is a bad one. You would think they would have somebody read the text for grammatical errors. But I guess if one in ten million fall for it, then it must be worth their time.
