  2. I'm currently getting at least 4 a day , supposedly from commonwealth bank.

    Funny thing is that I don't have any commonwealth accounts.

    And yes , it is a scam , and there is people that don't know it is , and do fill in the details.

    This should also be moved to the "Off Topic" section.
  3. I am getting the Com ones as well, but at least they can spell
    (I dont bank with either!!)
  4. considering your not a n00b, give yaself an uppercut, u should of known better :LOL:
  5. Click the link and enter details.

    You will need to also fax a copy of your birth certificate and drivers licence otherwise they can't verify your account.....
  6. moved to off-topic, tsk tsk
  7. I'm not seeing anything suss with this. Totally legit.
  8. I've been getting Commonwealth Bank ones even though I don't have any accounts with them.

    So I thought I'd respond to one with a whole bunch of fake info ..... unfortunately my security software blocked the website. :(
  9. Tried telling the Com bank one where to stick their emails but address cannot be found.

    How do these folks manage to do this?
    Surely there must be a return address.

    Anyone have any idea?
  10. Yeah, the fcukers are out of control.

    I don't bank with either bank but fcuk me if I'm not getting 20-30 a day.

    I've had to set up rules to simply delete the shit from the server before it hits my inbox.

    It is true that there are stupid people out there that fill in the details.

    Cliff, you serious??
  11. Nup. Got customers getting these all week.
  12. Glad it's not just me then. I'm getting about the same amount. fcuking shits me to tears!
