      It seems one of the casinos leaked email adresses to thiefs ... 
      So be vigilant
      I got today an email from "Moneybookers" as you can see in the attachment.
      Adress service@moneybookers.com seems genuine and if you click on the link it takes you to a page that looks EXACTLY like moneybookers mainpage with turning number to be typed in etc ...only when you click on properties it turns out to be a fake domain that is hosted on AOL server
      Well what made me suspicious is that
      1. I have a Pound Sterling acc. not USD
      2. I haven't been expecting a 147 USD withdrawal
      3. You don't have to click anywhere to accept payment like the email says

      Final test came when i actually typed in bogus info like nicetry@****.whatever and it still accepted those details and "logged" me in .
      It's kinda scary how real those things look, all the adresses www & email are correct, page looks exactly like it should. Well I think i'll make a big deposit to one of reputable casinos and change my password just in case.  Checked for any viruses but seems that's clear.

      Why I think it's got something to do with casinos? Well the subject says : 'WITHDRAWAL' and currency is USD. Anyway i don't use moneybookers for anything else and this Withdrawal thing makes me think that it's got to be connected with one of the casino's employees.

      Be careful & vigilant

      Thanx for the warning bastion 
      Actually i got the same f...g email from so called service@moneybookers.com. But the thing is that i got it on my other email( not the 1 i registered over MB). So i knew something was wrong, and i wasnt expecting any cash , and scary enough the amount is exactly the same like yours $147. I received such a emails on 2 or 3 more occasion.


      And when you use link from that email , youll get this information.

      Whoa
      I see another good reason to start using 'Firefox' - not only you've got a warning but also on top you've got correct adress ( 65.254. etc) which makes it much easier to spot

      quote:

      "A Washington woman was sentenced on Wednesday to two years in prison and five years of supervised release for her role in an Internet counterfeit check scheme.

      Edna Fiedler pleaded guilty in March to attempting to defraud U.S. citizens in a scheme known as a Nigerian check scam.

      Fiedler helped her accomplices in Nigeria send fake checks to people who had agreed to cash the checks on behalf of the sender, keeping some of the proceeds and sending the rest back.

      The Nigerians found people willing to cash the fake checks via e-mail. They would send their names as well as fake documents that looked like Wal-Mart money orders, Bank of America checks, U.S. Postal Service checks and American Express traveler's checks to Fiedler. They told her how to fill out the checks and where to send them.

      The recipients most likely thought they were helping out someone who needed a person in the U.S. to cash a check for them, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. They were able to get the money by cashing the checks, and sent most of it to either Fiedler or her Nigerian accomplices. However, once the checks were discovered to be fake, the people who cashed them were responsible for the full amount.

      All told, Fiedler sent out US$609,000 worth of phony checks and money orders. When U.S. Secret Service agents investigating the case searched Fiedler's house, they found additional fake checks worth more than $1.1 million that she was preparing to send out.

      At a recent conference in Seattle, a representative from the U.S. Postal Service and Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna described ways they're working to shut down these kinds of scams, particularly because they often involve people who don't realize that they're taking part in illegal activities.

      The U.S. Postal Service recently sent 15 postal investigators to Lagos, Nigeria, and during a three-month period there, they helped intercept counterfeit checks, lottery tickets and eBay overpayment schemes with a face value of $2.1 billion, Chris Siouris, a cyber investigator at the U.S. Postal Inspector, said at the recent conference. Siouris, McKenna and others are pushing for ways to better educate Internet users so that people don't unwittingly help out in these kinds of e-mail scams".

      Darn, these scammers won't fool me, but I really hate them.  I hope no innocent people will be set in a trap from these scammers, below is what they send me in email,


      This email was sent to you by Bank of America. To ensure delivery to your inbox, please add customerservice@bankofamerica.com to your address book or safe sender list.

      Bank of America

      FINAL NOTIFICATION FROM BANK OF AMERICA

      This message is to officially inform you that we received a telegraphic wire transfer of $510,090.00 (plus accumulated interest) from the United States government disbursement account as your compensatory grant for the current economic hardship.

      Please be aware that this compensatory grant has been deposited into an escrow account at the escrow office in Alabama and is available for remittance immediately.

      The standard payment procedure is as follows:- The funds will be wired into any bank account of your choice by Bank of America and the time frame for delivery is 24-48 hours.

      It is mandatory that you activate the escrow account by making a subsidized one-time payment of $450.00 via the western union money transfer or money gram to enable the wire transfer function of the escrow account.

      PLEASE NOTE: The escrow account activation fee of $450.00 could not be deducted from your funds as your funds are protected by a FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PREMIUM HARDCOVER-INSURANCE POLICY installed to prevent any deductions from your funds by financial institutions until remitted by you.

      Hence, the fee must be paid by you via the western union money transfer network or money gram to the payment secretary at the Escrow Office in Alabama.

      CONTACT THE PAYMENT SECRETARY IN ALABAMA TO RETRIEVE THE INFORMATION ON HOW TO PAY THE ACTIVATION FEE AND TO COMPLETE THIS TRANSACTION IMMEDIATELY:

      PAYMENT SECRETARY: David Dupont

      I JUST WANT TO REPOST  THIS AS A WARNING...FOR ANYONE WHO DIDN'T SEE THIS BEFORE, AND ANY NEWCOMER, AS I JUST RECEIVED AN IDENTICAL E-MAIL.

      PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!!  AND DO NOT CLICK ON WHERE IT SAYS CLICK TO RECEIVE MONEY HERE, WHATEVER YOU DO.  IT WILL EXTRACT ALL YOUR INFO.

      I also got an email but it was for my bank account. I knew it was fake because like Zuga, they sent it to my other email account not the one I use for my bank. I called my bank and they had me forward it to them so they could turn it over to their security for investigation and within a couple of hours they found out who it was and had them shut down.

      Well, I remember reading this from way back, and also I don't use my moneybookers account, so it wasn't hard to figure this was fraud..so I was lucky.  But sometimes people aren't so lucky. :-\
