Intlxpatr Has an NBK Account?

Also in my Intlxpatr mail this morning, LLLOOOLLL!

When I clicked on the “Update Now” type so that I could print their web address and encourage YOU to submit false data, their website did not even work.


Beware. These scammers are out there. Some aren’t as stupid as these guys. Some can fool ya.

  1. Yep, and sometimes you even get these popup pages while surfing the web, just know for a fact that your bank will never ask you for personal information like credit card number or pin or password. Beware and cheers for spreading the message!

  4. Patrick, no kidding? Maybe because I’m on a Mac, maybe because it’s a question of preferences, I dunno, I never get pop-ups. I think I’ve banned them, but it hasn’t happened to me. I worry about going to look-alike shopping places, though, where you guy things or reserve a room or something using your credit card.

    Chirp – Holy Smokes, you have a good eye. I totally missed that out-of-rational detail!

    1001 – She does have a good eye for detail, doesn’t she? I bet not much gets past Chirp.
