Whilst checking my Spam Filter I came across a really interesting offering from Somewhere East of Eastbourne. In 2009 I overpaid my taxes and got a refund — My sincere thanks to Mrs Shah and colleagues in Bradford Tax Office for increasing my cheer.
However last week this Phishing email arrived, horrifically, with the correct figure for the amount I was due.
Think about it. This means some Evil Spammer has got into the UK Tax System and dredged out some detailed personal figures to add verisimilitude to their Rotten Wet Phish.
PS Competition for insomniacs: There are at least five reasons, evident to my amateur Inspector Clouseau eye, why this message cannot be genuine, apart from the skill of my Apple Mail Spam Filter in weeding it out. Can you guess what they are?
