Spam stories Ben Ikin quits from Channel Nine

And uh, I’m supposed to facilitate your theft of my identity how?

June 3rd, 2009 at 02:29pm

I received an email today claiming to be from the Commonwealth Bank, informing me, as a customer (I don’t recall opening an account there, but I have been known to forget these things) that my account has been suspended, and that I should call 08 7123 3018 to “update my account” as soon as possible.

I rang the number to see what would happen. It rang twice, and I was then informed by the Telstra woman that “we regret that the number you have dialled is disconnected or unavailable”.

Intent on facilitating the theft of my identity, I decided to reply to the email, but alas it is “from” service@commbank.com.au with a reply-to address of no-reply@commbank.com.au

Looks like my identity is safe today.
