From: "Wells Fargo Online" <online@online.com> Ooh, neat email…

"Several attempts to log on to your account were detected this morning"

Oh crap! That was me! And now they've shut my account down, all because I tried to use it within the scope of reason. Darn my intolerable expectation of normalcy! (I didn't really try to log on…I don't even have an account. I just wanted to make something clear. They didn't say several fraudulent attempts or several suspicious attempts or even several failed attempts. For all we know, those attempts were successful, and done by the account holder.)

How's this for a run-on sentence?:

"You will not be able to access your online account
unless you re-activate your online access
but in order to do so, you will have to confirm your details
by Logging on to your account
to complete the verification process set out for you
before we can retrieve your online access."

Sick!

"You will not be able to access your online account unless you re-activate your online access"

EDU ACCOUNT UPGRADE TEAM: VERIFY YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT NOW (Email Spam)

Wow, these guys are persistent! I got a message saying "VERIFY" on Monday, January 28. Yesterday, five days later, I received the "FINAL NOTICE." I can't believe how far they're willing to take the scam. It's just too bad the original owners of bsaenz@purdue.edu and bnesbitt@purdue.edu fell for it.
