Indeed.

I wonder how many people are taken in by scams like this? What percentage of targeted addresses happen to be using the bank in question, that haven't already received one or more near-identical messages from banks they don't bank with that are naive enough to think the bank would contact them with a "fill in the attached form" ?

Should ring a bell when the pointer is over a link and shows an odd address.
Here is an example from a junk post - don't click it!!!!   http://ow.ly/4GLkX?arquivo_comprovante.comprovante-004206.PD (for security I left the last F out of it... or do you want to test your virus software?)

@ Karlos @ Zipper

Thanks for that info, I'll need to use it on the next load of spam I get to see where all this junk comes from... :)

I often wonder myself how many people actually fall for these things (and they must do otherwise it would have stopped by now), I mean you wouldn't give such details out over the phone or to some salesman at your front door so why do some folks do it on the internet... :crazy:
