  1. 2008.08.08 What the hell: Halifax Bank scam
Got an e-mail titled "Notification of Payment." I was like "What the...???"
I knew at once it was another kind of filthy spam mail, but opened it anyway, well, actually, I opened it by mistake; well, yes, I opened it anyway.
Not having received such a delicate and elaborate scam like this before, I had to google what the hell was going on with this one to find out this is one of the biggest scam flop I've ever met.
