This phishing attempt had no “Dear Sir or Madam”, no introductory line. Just a request for personal information and the claim that one would be sent an ATM card that has a large cash line behind it.
Why would a random senator send you such a thing? Why would the senator have a Hong Kong e-mail address?
If you arrived here because you were checking the validity of an e-mail like this which you received, you shouldn’t need me to tell you it is a hoax. Just use your brain! Think about it and you can figure it out for yourself…
This is to officially inform you that ATM Card with a fund worth $6.8
Million Dollars has been accredited in your favor, Please Contact Mrs.
Linda Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) With the following,
Senator David Mark.
