Well here we go.
This one makes no bones about it. They ask for your personal information in the SCAM SPAM letter which will allow them to basically hijack your identity as well as draining your bank account. And put a thinly veiled threat in it as well to try to force you to cooperate.
Well Sorry Mr. Mustapha, the Desk doesn't respond well to threats from people whose CAP LOCK button is stuck.
The source of the email is a web email server that doesn't seem to actually belong to anybody, bitwiser.com. Yahoo has not replied to the Desk as to the existence of a mailbox for the SCAMMER on their service.
The email is posted as received including all typos and errors in the text. Only the email account names have been deleted to prevent propagation of the SCAM, for our own good.Begin SCAM SPAM email:
