The Anonymous Widower

My Overdaft Has Been Suspended


 I received this scam  from someone claiming to be Egg.  I also received it four times. And overdraft was spelt the same in each.  I don’t have an overdaft. but I suspect they are!

Note that a link in the e-mail points to a German web site.  Perhapd, it’s to unsettle English fans before tomorrow. I don’t think it was sent by Germans though, as all the ones I know can spell better than that!

Dear Valued Egg Customer


Due to a recent credit limit check on your Egg Card, we have cancelled your overdaft until further noticed. Logon below to ammend your Egg Card and reactivate your account.

Log on to Internet Banking

Sorry for the inconvienence.

  1. I just love these scams – such quaint use of the English language! In fact I sometimes use them in my TEFL classes as examples of bad English!
