It's a scam...:-)

I had the same e-mail a couple of days ago plus a number of others this year.

Some people are daft enough, one presumes, to pay up without wondering how they have managed to spend so much on DVDs and yet can't find them...:-)

Must be a worthwhile exercise otherwise the scam toe rags wouldn't bother.

Hey, you have the same account details as me !!!!

Seriously though, I assumed it was trying to phish off the back of click here so sent a copy of the one I received to their info email address advising that I had received it.

Received my first copy of this one last night so I figured it was a new one.

Just read this in my Local daily paper today.

Warning from MP on scam by email.

An MP last night issued a warning after he nearly became the latest victim of an email fraud.

Waveney MP bob Blizzard has asked Trading Standards to carry out an investigation into the “crafty scam”.

Mr Blizzard said he received an email earlier this week from DVD Zone Shop Team, claiming to be a bank transaction confirmation for £286.95. A note on the bottom said he should email the company if he had any queries.

“I was suspicious because I knew I had not purchased anything from DVD Zone so I contacted Suffolk Trading Standards,” Mr Blizzard said.

“They confirmed this is a new scam. The crooks behind it hope people will contact them through the email address link given, where they will be asked questions, which give the crooks access to the victim’s bank account.

“This is a very crafty scam because I discovered on a web search there is a company called DVD Zone which appears to be legitimate. Its internet address is The scammers are using the address”

“I have asked Trading Standards to investigate and prosecute, but I want to alert others.”

Adam Barnes, of Suffolk Trading Standards, said: “You know if you’re dealing with a company or not. If you get an email like that from a company you’re not dealing with, then it’s best to delete it”.

Contact 08454 04 05 06 with any queries.
