    I received this email the other day that was supposedly from a bank. Unfortunately for the fraudsters, it was the US Bank. So being the cautious type (and never having a bank account outside the country) I put a google search in for 'US Bank Fraud email' and it picked up this site: http://www.fraudwatchinternational.com (Although the validity of this site is unknown as well, read through here before going there) which had the email that I had received on it.

    Just reminding you folks out there browsing the net, people will exploit you given the opportunity. If you receive mail like this or from someone you dont know, dont trust it as far as you can... well, you cant throw it but you get the picture.

    That site on the link has a list of frauds and current warnings. And forward these mails if you get them to the addresses provided on that page.

    With that in mind, makes you wonder if you can trust the site with those sorts of things on them. The option is yours to go or not to go there, maybe Im just paranoid, but just stay wary of hoaxes and frauds.. Firewalls and virus-scanners cant save you from your own submission of data you think is something else.
