    Seen on Bing News this morning, yet another scam for the unwary or those who do not spot the two spelling mistakes and poor grammar.

    "We are currrently upgrading our database and we found that you are eligible to recieve a refund from your last payment made on our behalf. A refund can be delayed for a variety of reasons. As example, for submitting invalid records or applying over the deadline," it reads.

    "To complete your refund application with us, you are required to fill out the form in the link below... If you refuses to complete your application within two weeks of receiving this email will cause the lose the specified amount and you will take full responsabilty for that. "

    I suppose it costs the scammers peanuts to send out hundreds of thousands of emails, only needs one or two mugs to fall for it and they are making an easy profit.
