I do hope you responded to your "esteemed servants" Chris lol
I had one from Aamozon.
I keep being told my payment has been declined. I haven't ordered anything.
I've not gotten any of those *sad face*.
i had a scam email from supposedly British Gas saying i owed money from years ago £21.63...and that would rise to £140 and i would be cut off if i didn't pay immediately!
All scam emails can be forwarded to [email protected]
You don't get an individual reply to each one forwarded but i think they do look into them...
The sad thing about this type of email is some people fall for it.

Yes it is, but a hit rate of only 0.5% will still make it worthwhile for the scammers. :(

The bad grammar and misspelling are thought by experts to be deliberate. Intelligent folks, like so many on here, spot the mistakes, realise it is a scam and do not respond. The less well educated are the target of these scum.
