Agreed; because you know what to look for, but I wouldn't mind betting a "pound to a pinch" that a fair few people have fallen for it.
I've said before, the fact that the people here take the time to visit and even "lurkers" that read the threads, are more computer literate than average.
Trust me; the vast majority can barely turn a computer on, let alone recognise a scam, even as blatant as this. Surprisingly, even people that use computers in their work, are often limited to the application they have been taught, and anything outside of that, appears to be rocket science!
You are right, most people are intimidated by computers so they wouldn't see anything wrong, maybe computers should come with a government warning, like ciggies and health warnings but saying "You will lose all your money if you don't read this warning" with instructions enclosed for computers.
