Don't fall for this one:

Subject: You credit card has been charged for $234.65

Important notice

We have just charged your credit card for money laundry service in amount of $234.65 (because you are either child pornography webmaster or deal with dirty money, which require us to layndry them and then send to your checking account).
If you feel this transaction was made by our mistake, please press "No".
If you confirm this transaction, please press "Yes" and fill in the form below.

(asks here for CC number and expiration date)

I've heard about this one, I really can't believe people fall for these things.

I got one from "paypal" the other day, it look VERY, VERY real. The reply email even looked to be from XXXXXXX@paypal.com. It wanted credit card and checking account info.

I'd be very pleased to look into this matter for you.

All you need to do is e-mail me your credit card number and expiry date, along with your bank account details, driver's license number, SSN, and a notarized letter giving me full authority to act on your behalf in all financial transactions, and I'll see what I can do........ [Linked Image]
