I can't believe how stupid some email spammers are. I got an email today in my regular business sccount from ChaseBank@ChaseServices.alibaba.com. It was telling me that if I don't update my account information (at their fictitious web site) I will aotomatically be deleted from their system and loose all my funds. 

Here it is:

John~I been collecting some of these goofy spam emails, just for the humor. It's unfortunate they do get some people with these.

Have an AWESOME evening!

Absolutely amazing that anyone could fall for this, but you know someone will see it and panic. Very sad this is what people do with their time.

I know Kathy. I was amazed - that's why I had to say something!

Pacita, everyone knows it's J.P.Morgan, not J.Morgan. Crazy

Michael, this is the first one I've gotten supposedly from a bank that is literally riddled with holes.

Susan, people need to read the fine print. Why would J.Morgan.com Hong Kong be sending me an email...
