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:

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
