Well linky is to a RU site.
You certainly seem to attract a load of spam shutter!
I check my spam folder but rarely actually view any of them before deleting them.

@HairyMcbiker  Well, I don`t think that 1 or 2 per month is "a lot of spam"  ! ... I just pass on those that I think are worth mentioning on here...

 

The worst spam I get is from Ebay... asking me for a review on what I have bought... !..

Well thats certainly a new twist on spam email - parking fines. I wonder how many idiots will fall for that when they've just got one the day before.... Yikes.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Scary, how so?

Just obvious garbage to me. 

All views expressed are my own but you can express them too if you want to be right about everything like I am.

There is a real company at that address: UK Parking Control Limited. Might they be interested too?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

i'd be scared too if I parked in a supermarket car park and then received an email telling me about the parking enforcement fine they were giving out....

 

my mother got one a few years back (overstayed at a lidl car park by 5 minutes) they emailed her and when she went to the magistrates court asked how the parking company had gained her email address.... end result no fine to pay

just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: Scary Email ! !

I'm very disappointed that I've never won the Nigerian lottery, most of the people I know have.

More seriously though, I received an obvious phishing email claiming to be from a bank I don't have an account with.  When I forwarded the email to the bank, their response was effectively, "Yeah, we know, don't bother us again".

Nat West by any chance? I get several of them a month. I have NEVER had an account with them anyway.
(Along with several from paypal and others.) Just bin them like the rest.

Well lets face it there isn't really much that they can do is there other than report it to the local police in the country of origin - and in corrupt / poor countries its not like the police will really care.

Re: Scary Email ! !

The bank I'm actually with encourages customers to report suspected phishing emails, and I would imagine other banks do the same.  That's why I was surprised to receive a reply which seemed to consider me a nuisance.  Surely a simple "Thank you for letting us know." would have been better.
