Yet Another ATM Scam

Sometimes, I feel that I'm remiss if I don't occasionally remind people to never give out personal information! Most of my readers are not only tasteful, but highly intelligent. (Then there are the atheopaths — go ahead and take advantage of the special offer in the next paragraph.) Ignore any e-mail that wants personal information or a "click here", especially if the requested information was (a) in your spam folder, (b) not from anyone you know, (c) sounds too good to be true. Still, a reminder now and then helps, yes?

Aside from the bad grammar from someone who does not speaks good engrish, the scam looks a bit more convincing than others.

By the way, for the atheopaths who are upset that they missed out on my Wingless Chicken Bones franchise offers, take a break from your ongoing pointless mission to demonize people. Here's another great deal for you! 

Please pay attention, the font and color changes are to offset my wording from the scam — I mean, business opportunity for atheopaths.


Attention: Beneficiary

Please read this mail carefully and proceed to collect your ATM CARD worth US$7.500,000.00 payment.

Following this year's (2013) review of the global financial matters and just concluded investigations today by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in conjunction with the ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION (E.F.C.C), it is revealed that your email is among the list of people who have never received any of their payments among  lottery,inheritance, compensation and awarded contract funds and victims who have lost a lot of money to scammers while trying to claim their funds.

In view of the foregoing, a new payment of US$7.500,000.00 has been approved in your favor and credited into an ATM CARD which shall be delivered to you.

Note: Thousands of fraudsters have been using this method in scamming most foreign creditors that we have in the payment list here in our office.
