    I got a kick out of this one in my inbox today. It like they're trying to fail...
    I did not alter that one bit. The URL actually had spaces in it, she used double commas and linebreaks every which where. I truly can't fathom the kind of person who would fall for this - they're actually putting in the effort to add spaces to a domain that clearly doesn't belong to their "banking"...

    I never respond to those things unless they are offering me money. That email wouldn't work on me... probably.

    They would be better off just asking you for your banking information so they could try and take your money.:p

    Why? I've made millions of dollars online without lifting a finger. Let's just say I work as an intermediary. If you'd like to find out more about some of the great opportunities that I just stumble on in my inbox, e-mail me and I'll let you in on the secret, too!!
