I think that some of these phishing emails are a sort of sad joke. As you say, they are so amateurish that even the most gullible would not be taken in by them.

In the past week I've had seven emails from barclays (sic) asking for my account details. I don't have, don't want and never will have an account at that bank.

Anyone receiving these fraudulent emails should report them. No Bank will ever ask for your information by email. They finally arrested the one's involved with the Nigerian scam.

If we can all unite to expose these and others, (spam included) maybe, just maybe, we can hit them where it hurts. Keeping silent only encourages them to continue.

I always report these emails, especially the ones from ebay and paypal, neither of which I have any contact with in other ways but who seem to ask for my details more than anyone else.
