Have been lurking on the forums for a while getting quite a laugh. In my work email I received a scam I've never seen before involving some kind of pre-paid ATM card? Any ideas? Have setup a baiting email and the mugu has responded.

Have a look:

welcome to Eater Vapour,

Thats a fairly common scam now, there's a few in Surplus, a good one to start with, they will want some sort of address/bank account etc from you, make up some sort of address, unless you really want the card sent, then apply via the Pimms and cheese dip in my siggy line for a drop box

Youll get a few months out of a well run bait from them

They can be fun, just keep it simple, don't try to be funny or weird, they'll drop you so fast you'll be wondering wtf

Oh there are sticky things around the forums, the main one is

Apply for a Mentor, after that everyone will tell you the same thing

You won't get the card btw, no matter how much you ask or try to send them

edit to add: if you click the link to Scamwarners at the top of each page, and look for certificates etc, you'll find Oceanic Bank

edit Further: Don't send any emails from your work, the ip will resolve to your work place regardless of using a seperate baiting account from there

SeniorNet NZ Local Branch ongoing workshops about internet scams For when you want to remember why we bait

Goodbye Mike (Paranoid) Friend, confidant, partner. Till we meet again.

Hi Vapour,

Welcome to Eater. Very Happy

Here is a similar ATM scam. Take a look around the Surplus 419 Letters section and you will find many familiar scams.
